I applied for the Toyota Drive for Education funding and learned that my classroom has been selected as one of the 14 winners in the state for the $2500.00 award! Wow!!!
In the essay to receive this $2500.00 funding, I wrote about the need my photography class has for more/better quality film cameras so that I have more of a class set available rather than having to have everyone share the 5 or 6 good ones we do have.
What happens next is the PREP 45 Facebook page will post all the winning essays and the essay that gets the most votes allows that person’s classroom to get upgraded to a $10,000.00 award.
They are going to present the award to me on March 7 ….LIVE on TV… at the XCEL Center during the Minnesota Boys State Hockey Tournament.
It would mean the world to me if you would go to “Like” their Facebook page and place your vote for the ACGC high school art department. When you go to “Like” their page, click on the “Contests: Toyota Drive for Education” button (it’s on the right kind of under their cover photo) and then click “Vote”.
This is such a cool opportunity for ACGC and I am so excited to be able to have a chance to get this new equipment for my student artists.
Thank you all, VERY MUCH!!!
