Edinboro teacher receives grant

Posted on October 20, 2017, in Events

Edinboro Elementary teacher Katie Waddell was named a recipient of Northwestern Rural Electric Cooperative’s 2017 Clearly Brighter Teacher Grant.

She was awarded $450 for her hands-on science unit focused on the moon. The students will participate in several learning stations and finish the unit by designing a Moon Buggy. This unit will take place in January.

The Clearly Brighter Teacher Grant Program was designed to help kids by providing their teachers with financial assistance for innovative and effective educational curriculum that is not covered by traditional school financing. Individual teachers can apply for grants up to $250, while teams of teachers (two or more) can apply for grants up to $500. Since 2000, REC has awarded $51,000 in grant funds to teachers and educators throughout Northwestern REC’s service territory.

Applications for the next grant period (fall 2018) will be accepted online beginning May 1, 2018, through Sept. 15, 2018. Visit NorthwesternREC.coop for more information.
