North Carolina’s 27 electric cooperatives, known as the Touchstone Energy cooperatives, are expect to award approximately $500,000 to teachers for innovative and creative classroom projects performed during the 2004-05 school year. Individual grants up to $2,000 are available from the electric cooperatives. Teachers who submit their application by Aug. 18 also will be entered into a drawing for a digital camera. All North Carolina certified K-12 teachers are eligible for a Bright Ideas grant, not just those served by the state’s 27 electric cooperatives.
