Horry Electric is extending the deadline for Bright Ideas grant applications due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
The new application deadline for 2020 is August 31, 2020.
“Due to the uncertain times we’re living in, we want to give our teachers extra time to complete their applications,” said Toni Gore, coordinator of the Bright Ideas program.
Bright Ideas is a grant program designed to provide funding for innovative classroom-based educational projects.
Bright Ideas 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.
“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 classroom,” says Gore.
Anyone interested can apply online through our website.
