Carroll EMC Awards 2019 Bright Ideas Grants - Haralson County

Carroll EMC recently awarded grants to local educators to fund creative and innovative educational projects for students in their classrooms. Grants of up to $1,000 were awarded to public school teachers, teaching grades Pre-K – 12, for projects in any subject.

Bright Ideas grants are funded through the donations of Carroll EMC Members who participate in Operation Round Up®, a program where Members elect to “round-up” their electric bills to the nearest dollar. The program is overseen by Carroll EMC Foundation trustees and funds a variety of community service projects including Bright Ideas, student scholarships, and many health and human services programs.

For 2019, 84 grants were awarded, totaling $65,959. These grants will help 84 teachers in 31 schools and will affect hundreds of children in our communities.
