Bing "Our School Needs"

Bing has an awesome contest going on right now. They are awarding $250,000 in prize money divided between four schools in need. And you can help! The entry with the most votes will received $100,000 then the other 3 will each get $50,000.

Bing is also giving away $900,000 to schools in need through DonorsChoose.org. It's a non-profit website where public school teachers can post classroom projects that need funding. Be one of the first 30,000 to vote for your favorite finalists each day and receive $3 donation code to redeem for the classroom project of your choice!

They are asking America to vote on the 15 Our School Needs finalists, who were determined by a panel of judges. The voting runs through Sunday, November 7th. So go choose which school you feel deserves this money the most. What a great way to take part in a special project like this.

Education is so important to every child, and we all know that some schools do not have the best resources for their students. A few years ago our local school was in need. With my teaching background, I have done a lot of work in that school. It was hard to see cutbacks being made. Class sizes got larger. And sports became pay to participate, which meant not everyone who wanted to could play if they couldn't afford it. It was sad to see them lose funding. Thank goodness the community rallied together and finally passed a levy to renew the funding they needed.  Every little thing that you can do will help this project along. Thanks for helping!

VOTE NOW!
