Thank you to all of the teachers who took the time to apply! It is an honor and a privilege to be involved with the schools in our community and projects that will enhance the learning environment for so many children!
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 $500 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. An impartial panel of judges will determine which projects will be awarded the eight grants of five hundred dollars each.
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.
