Bright Ideas Program

EnergyUnited’s Bright Ideas program has expanded learning opportunities for students and teachers for over 25 years by awarding grants to North Carolina teachers to support innovative, classroom-based projects that wouldn’t typically be funded by schools. Sponsored through North Carolina’s Touchstone Energy cooperatives, Bright Ideas supports teachers who believe enhanced education inspires young minds, which is similar to EnergyUnited’s core value to create a brighter tomorrow within our communities.

Since 1994, EnergyUnited and the Bright Ideas program contributed over $800,000 to local teachers across 19 counties in North Carolina, impacting over 2.1 million students.

To apply, teachers must explain their goals, creative elements, implementation and the budget of the project. Grants up to $2,000 are given to teachers who are accepted into the program.

Applications for the Bright Ideas program are now available through Monday, September 23, 2019.
