Calling all educators!
Empower Workshop

Pioneer Electric is teaming up with other cooperatives to sponsor the 2023 Empower Energy Education Workshop for K-12 teachers June 4-6, 2023.

We will host 150 teachers from across Alabama and northwest Florida at the Hilton Sandestin Beach Golf Resort & Spa, where they’ll participate in activities designed specifically for educators who teach energy in the classroom.

Workshop registration, lodging at the Hilton Sandestin Beach Golf Resort & Spa and meals at the event are included in the scholarship. Mileage to and from the event will also be reimbursed. Teachers who complete the workshop receive continuing education credits, a NEED Science of Energy kit, a class-set of NEED Energy Infobooks (at grade level), and access to all NEED Curriculum Guides and supplemental resources. Plus, attendees will have the opportunity to network with other educators.

The application is at and must be completed by February 10. Please select “Pioneer Electric Cooperative” from the dropdown menu, even if your school receives electric service from Alabama Power Company. For more information, contact Christi Scruggs at (334) 382-4904 or
