It’s that time of year again…Jones-Onslow is searching for Bright Ideas grant applications from teachers and principals, grades K-12, in the 48 public schools in Jones and Onslow counties, as well as the Topsail area of Pender County.

The grants, which are awarded in any discipline, enable educators to help students learn through innovative scholastic projects that are not covered by regular school funds. Educators may apply for individual grants up to $500 or in teams for grants up to $2,000.

After twenty-three years, JOEMC’s Bright Ideas Grant Program has awarded 1,572 grants to more than 4,750 educators. These funds have had a direct impact on the education of close to 457,000 students in our community schools.

All grant applications must be submitted online to JOEMC by Friday, September 22, 2017. Bright Ideas grant recipients will be announced in the fall and honored at a special awards banquet. Educators can get Bright Ideas grant information from their school principal or by going to the Bright Ideas page.
