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 one years, JOEMC’s Bright Ideas Grant Program has awarded 1,350 grants to more than 4,300 educators. These funds have had a direct impact on the education of close to 435,000 students in our community schools.

All grant applications must be received by Jones-Onslow no later than 5:00pm on Friday, September 25, 2015.

Bright Ideas grant recipients will be announced in the fall and honored at a special awards banquet.

Early Bird Entries: Get your Bright Ideas application into the JOEMC Office by Friday, September 11, 2015, and your name will be put in a drawing to win an Apple Ipad for your classroom.
