JACKSON, Mich., May 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- In celebration of its 125th anniversary, Consumers Energy is giving 100 grants to teachers who had their students participate in the utility's Hazard Hamlet or Respect the Flags programs.
Each teacher who hosted a presentation this year was entered into a random drawing to win a grant, worth $125 each. The grants may be used to purchase school supplies and other educational items. They will be sent to teachers before the end of the school year.
