Attention Horry County school teachers! If you have a bright idea for a classroom project, you can apply for a grant through Horry Electric’s Bright Ideas program.
Bright Ideas is a grant program designed to provide funding for innovation classroom-based educational projects. The grants are intended to fund projects outside normal public school funding parameters and can be made available to all disciplines in grades K-12 in Horry County.
A school may submit an application, and teachers are limited to one application per year. $1,000 is the maximum amount teachers can apply for.
In 2020, 11 teachers were awarded grants for their innovative projects, totaling $10,000.
“We encourage any teacher in the district to apply! We would love the opportunity to help fund any project a teacher may want to do for their class,” says Toni Gore, coordinator of the Bright Ideas program.
The deadline to apply is June 1, 2021. Grants will be awarded in the Fall.
Anyone interested can apply online through our website.
