BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WECT) - More than 20 teachers from Brunswick and Columbus Counties were recognized Thursday.

The Brunswick Electric Membership Corporation hosted their annual Bright Ideas award luncheon where teachers were presented with a check for over $33,000.

The grants are awarded to teachers who develop creative programs that are not funded within the usual school budget process.

The Bright Ideas program originated in 1994, and  has since awarded grants totaling more than $6.5 million to teachers across the state.
