Idaho Power Education Grants
Here is yet another opportunity for our schools to get money for meaningful activities and lessons. What is holding us back from taking advantage of all the resources available to teachers, parents, and community groups? The answers include time and passion, and we all need to have more of both!
Idaho Power has launched a new set of grants aimed at improving educational opportunities across its service area.
The Powering Tomorrow Grants are available to tax-exempt organizations, schools and programs that intend to use the funding primarily to promote educational opportunities, strengthening communities down the road. The electric utility will award multiple grants of up to $1,500 each.
To apply, Idaho Power asks interested groups to “share their education story” at facebook.com/ idahopower by Jan. 31, 2012. A complete list of eligibility requirements and contest rules is also available on that page.
Special consideration will be given to programs that serve large numbers of students of any age, create meaningful differences in their communities, encourage innovation or advances in new and established fields, and receive a large number of nominations.
