Helping the Teachers

We are pleased to help schools and teachers in the community. The following programs showcase our efforts to support energy education:

Teacher Grant Program: OGE Energy Corp. awards teacher grants up to $1,000, and they are available to teachers at public schools in OG&E and Enogex service territories in Oklahoma and Western Arkansas.  Any creative project, which deals with reading, mathematics or science, will be considered. Information about teacher grants is provided during the last semester of the school year. For more information, e-mail OGECOMMUNITYRELATIONSTEAM@OGE.COM.

4th Grade Electrical Safety Program: Our 4th Grade Electrical Safety Program is a custom designed energy curriculum to educate students about electrical safety and help them encourage their families to follow helpful safety tips at home. To schedule this program for 4th grade contact OGECOMMUNITYRELATIONSTEAM@OGE.COM.

The Prairie Project: On the Prairie Project website you will find great tutorials on plants, animals, fire, grazing, and energy.  The "Energy" link on The Prairie Project page contains information about how energy in the prairie comes from wind, storms, oil and natural gas, and explains how each of these forms of energy is different from one another. Other links provide information about different grasses and woody plants, birds, insects, large and small mammals and reptiles.  For those who have an interest in grazing, there is information available about how grazing affects the way fire behaves and how it creates habitat for wildlife.  In addition, you can learn how fire can be beneficial through prescribed fire, as well as the dangers of wildfire.

The Prairie Project was developed in the department of natural resource ecology and management at Oklahoma State University, in cooperation with OGE Energy Corp.  It is an informative and useful tool for youth and teachers. To learn more, go to http://theprairieproject.okstate.edu/.
