Bright Ideas


Carroll EMC awards Bright Ideas grants to local teachers to fund innovative and creative educational projects for their students. Grants of up to $1,000 are presented to public school educators, teaching grades pre-K through 12, for classroom-based projects in a variety of subjects.

Bright Ideas grants are funded through the donations of Carroll EMC Members who participate in the Cooperative’s Operation Round Up program. Since 2007, local teachers have received grants totaling nearly $392,000 to enhance the learning of students in Carroll EMC’s seven-county service area.

Applicants must complete an online application. Individual teachers may submit one application per school year. Members of the Foundation Board of Trustees review the applications and select the winners. Grant recipients are announced in December.


Grant applications are due by September 15 each year.
