Classroom Empowerment Grants
Tri-County Electric Cooperative is once again coordinating a grant program with Touchstone Energy for our local, private, and public kindergarten through 12th grade teachers and administrators. A total of eight grants of five hundred dollars each will be provided for innovative, unfunded projects or materials. Qualifying projects are those which improve the learning environment or increase educational resources for the school.
Kindergarten through 12th grade administrators or teachers must submit a grant application with information about the project, the school, and the applicant. Please note, it only takes a few minutes to apply.
An impartial panel of judges will determine which projects will be awarded the eight grants of five hundred dollars each.
Completed applications are due by November 9, 2017. They can be mailed, e-mailed, or faxed to Brad Austin at Tri-County Electric. Recipients will be announced mid-December.

These grants provide a boost for smaller projects that otherwise would not be funded. Part of Tri-County’s commitment to our community is achieved through these grants that create opportunities for local students.
