Teachers,

I have received the following email, from Gale Cutler, about a grant
opportunity.



 Guys,


Thought you might want to forward this mini-grant opportunity to your
teachers. The project has to have their local EMC involved in some
way. Apparently
they have only received 6 applications this year and have decided to extend
the deadline to November 1st.  The nomination form is attached – basic info
from that form is pasted below:****

** **

*WHO MAY APPLY FOR THESE GRANTS?*

*Any rural K – 12 classroom teacher whose school or community is served by
a local Rural Electric Cooperative, or whose students’ homes are served by
a local Rural electric Cooperative.*

*HOW DO I QUALIFY FOR A GRANT?*

Your school, community, or students must be served by a local Rural
Electric Cooperative. ****

*HOW MUCH ARE THE GRANTS?*

*                *There will be ten Mini-Grants of $500 each to be expended
during the 2012-2013 school year for student-based projects. Each
Mini-Grant will be funded during the 2012-2013 school year.****

*HOW WILL THE APPLICATIONS BE JUDGED?*

*                *All applications will be screened by the NREA Teacher
Activities Committee to select fifteen finalists. The NRECA will select the
ten winners from the fifteen finalists.****

*Applications will be judged on the following criteria:*

**1.       **A project design that demonstrates cooperation between

involvement;****

Rural Electric Cooperative;****

**5.       **A project design that focuses on student learning;****

**6.       **Overall quality of the application and adherence to grant
guidelines.****

*ENTRIES MUST BE POSTMARKED BY November 1, 2012*

*WHAT SHOULD BE THE FOCUS OF A PROPOSAL?*

                An eligible project should feature an investigation of the
science of energy or electricity. Project ideas could include a study of
the local geology, the history of hydroelectric generation in your
community, or alternative sources of energy for the next generation. The
project should be limited only by the imagination of your students and the
resources you have available.****
