According to a press release by Amicalola EMC, the organization’s Bright Ideas teacher grant program is a competition designed to reward teachers who take the time to plan, research and enact a creative classroom learning experience for their students. 

“Since the program began in 2012, a total of $526,133.59 has been awarded to fund 800 classroom projects,” the release said. “The program is offered to Georgia certified teachers at elementary, middle, high school and private schools within the Amicalola EMC service area.”
