Wake Forest, NC— Local teachers can apply for grants of up to $3,000 through the 2012-2013 Bright Ideas education grant program.

Bright Ideas, sponsored by Wake Electric, strives to improve education in our state’s classrooms by awarding grants to public school teachers in grades K-12 for innovative, classroom-based projects that would not otherwise be funded. The Bright Ideas grant program is the only one of its kind in our state, exclusively for North Carolina’s K-12 teachers.

The deadline to submit applications for the 2012-2013 school year is September 12. But teachers who submit their application by the early bird deadline on August 17 will be entered in a drawing to win a $500 Visa gift card.
