Bright Ideas

Mid-Carolina believes deeply in the power of creativity to ensure a brighter future. Through our Bright Ideas program, we support local educators and their students as they pursue innovative projects in the classroom. Each October we award approximately $18,000 in grants to the winning teachers to help supplement often limited school resources for their creative classroom projects.

Bright Ideas is open to educators in kindergarten through 12th grades in Lexington County School Districts One, Two, Three and Five, and in the Saluda County School District. 

Applications for Bright Ideas are now open. To learn more about Bright Ideas or to apply for grant funding, contact us at
