The deadline for the Baldwin Electric Membership Charitable Foundation’s Star Light program is September 19, 2014. Applications are available at all three Baldwin EMC office locations and at www.baldwinemc.com. This program offers grants to local teachers for the purpose of supporting classroom projects and lessons that use innovative or creative techniques. The grant is funded through Baldwin EMC’s Operation Round Up program, which uses change collected from the rounding up of participating members’ electric bills for charitable causes.
Kindergarten through 12th grade teachers in accredited public or private schools within Baldwin EMC’s service area are encouraged to apply. Applicants should be able to demonstrate how the lesson or project they are hoping to initiate demonstrates innovation, creativity, teamwork among students, and clear and thorough planning.
Applications must be received either by mail or in person at one of Baldwin EMC’s offices in Summerdale, Bay Minette or Orange Beach by close of business on September 19, 2014. All repeat applicants must submit a new application.
