Is there an exciting hands-on project that you would like to bring to your classroom? The Bright Ideas grant program from Covington Electric Cooperative gives teachers a chance to explore endless possibilities.
CEC offers a limited number of grants to individual teachers to support innovative and interactive initiatives that are not covered by traditional funding. This program is available for teachers in grades K4-12. These grant funds are only available to public and private schools served by CEC.
CEC is no longer offering team grants and the maximum amount that an individual teacher may apply for is $800.
All applications must be submitted no later than Nov. 2, 2023 to: Covington Electric Cooperative, Attn: Patty S. Seay, 18836 US Hwy 84, Andalusia, AL 36421. Applications for the current school year are available by clicking below.
I used my Bright Ideas grant to construct and sustain hydroponics and aquaponics systems for food production to educate students on sustainable agriculture and to teach students to be more environmentally responsible. This project also promotes healthy eating habits. – Scott Crosby, Kinston School
