Bright Ideas awards teachers money for innovative lessons and projects to energize students learning abilities.  The purpose of the Bright Ideas Program is to provide resources for teachers which will enable them to plan and implement special instructional opportunities to improve student achievement though the implementation of the Georgia Performance Standards.

The Bright Ideas program will award grants of up to $1,000 to winning teachers. Public and private school teachers, teaching grades K-12, in any subject area are eligible to apply.  Schools in the areas that Colquitt EMC serves may submit more than one application.  However, teachers are eligible to submit only one application per school year.  The grants are not for professional development.
