Carroll EMC Awards 2018 Bright Ideas Grants

Carroll EMC Awards 2018 Bright Ideas Grants


Carroll EMC recently awarded grants to local educators to fund creative and innovative educational projects for students in their classrooms. Grants of up to $1,000 were awarded to public school teachers, teaching grades Pre-K – 12, for projects in any subject.

Bright Ideas grants are funded through the donations of Carroll EMC Members who participate in Operation Round Up®, a program where Members elect to “round-up” their electric bills to the nearest dollar. The program is overseen by Carroll EMC Foundation trustees and funds a variety of community service projects including Bright Ideas, student scholarships, and many health and human services programs.

For 2018, 104 grants were awarded, totaling $78,924. These grants will help 104 teachers in 41 schools and will affect hundreds of children in our communities.
