Applications now open for YEC’s Bright Ideas Grant for local teachers
For the fifth year, York Electric Cooperative and Operation Round Up Trust will fund grants for local teachers. Applicants can win up to $1,000 to help pay for innovative learning methods and materials to support students in their classrooms. Partial funding will also be available for grants so that we can make a larger impact on the young minds and hearts that will be shaping the future of our community.
Additionally, we’d like to invite you— our members—to get involved! For the first time, we will also be filling the Amazon wishlists for local teachers. Nominate someone who has been impactful to you, your student or your family and tell us why they deserve some extra love to fill their needs and classroom supplies. Perhaps they teach at a low-income school, were asked to switch grade levels or are just starting out as a new teacher. Either way, your co-op needs your help to locate those who are remarkable and who need our help.
Both applications for our Bright Ideas Grant and our Wishlist Nominations are due by Wednesday, Sept. 13. Learn more and apply online.
