The 2022 Bright Ideas teacher grant program, sponsored by Amicalola EMC, awarded $50,737 to 74 winning teachers across our service area. Teachers in 30 schools received grants of up to $1,000 each for classroom projects.
The program is funded using unclaimed property in accordance with Georgia’s unclaimed property laws. The 2022 grants bring the total amount awarded since the program began in 2010 to $576,870.59. Amicalola EMC is proud to support our schools, our teachers and our students.

The 2022 Georgia midterm elections will take place on Tuesday, November 8, 2022. Voters will choose a new state legislature and all the state’s top executives. Georgia’s 14 U.S. congressional seats and one of two U.S. Senate seats are up for election. As election day draws near, here are some important dates to remember:
Absentee ballot deadlines
- Request for ballot must be received by October 28

Unlike Election Day, you do not have to vote at an assigned polling location during early voting, you may vote at any early voting location within your county. In 2022, early voting will end on Friday, November 4.
Cooperatives serve their members most effectively and strengthen the cooperative movement by working together.
Eight Amicalola EMC line crew workers are on their way to southwest Florida to join hundreds of other line crew workers from across the southeast who are working to restore power to the members of Lee County Electric Cooperative, in the aftermath of Hurricane Ian.
Headquartered in North Fort Myers, Florida, Lee County Electric Cooperative is one of the largest cooperatives in the United States with more 250,000 members and more than 8,000 miles of energized line.
This is the second time in recent days Amicalola EMC line crew workers have provided mutual aid, as two line crews just returned from restoring power at Lumbee River Electric Membership Corporation in eastern North Carolina.
