Teachers, send in your Bright Ideas!
Learning starts in the classroom. Our dedicated teachers work tirelessly to prepare students for the world to come. Although it is necessary to pass on the basics of science, math and language arts, our teachers go beyond what is required so that the lessons mean something and stick with the student.
The application deadline is Wednesday, September 13, 2023.
To help YEC show our support for teachers, we invite our members and community to nominate outstanding teachers and help us identify those in need.
Funding to accomplish these beneficial projects is often a problem, which is why York Electric Cooperative and our Operation Round Up Trust Board are working together to provide the Bright Ideas Grant Program. All kindergarten through 12th-grade teachers at public schools in York, Clover, Lancaster, Rock Hill and Fort Mill school districts, and K-12 teachers at private schools in YEC’s service territory are eligible to apply for a grant to fund an innovative program to implement in their classroom. Each public school district and one private school will be awarded one grant of up to $1,000.
