The Operation Round Up Board of Directors created a mini-grant program to help teachers with classroom projects or educational field trips. Operation Round Up approved another three-year cycle of teacher mini-grants.
There are 10 mini-grants of $500 each available during the 2018-2019 school year. Entries must be submitted by May 15, 2018. This year’s grant is available to any K-12 science or art/music teacher if any of the following criteria are met:
1. The teacher is a member of (receives electric service from) South Plains Electric Cooperative.
2. At least one student in the class is a member of and receives electric service at their home or family business from South Plains Electric Cooperative.
Ten teachers received grants for their reading and social studies classroom projects for the 2017-2018 school year. Stories will be published in this magazine and available at www.SPEC.coop under the Operation Round Up tab.
