Logan seeks online votes in Clorox grant competition

By The Spokesman-Review
 

The Spokane Public Schools Foundation has found a “clean” way to earn some money for Logan Elementary School.

The foundation recently entered a grant program sponsored by the Clorox Corp. The program is similar to the Pepsi grant program, where participants have the opportunity to win $20,000 or $50,000 for their schools.

Winners are determined by the most votes, and people can vote once a day. Logan students, parents and staff are asking the community for their help and their votes.

To vote, visit clorox.promo.eprize.com/brightfuture. Click on “Vote Now!” Search for Logan Elementary “fifth- and sixth-grade band and strings extravaganza.” Then, click on “Vote for your nomination!”

Follow the instructions, enter and submit your vote.

Participants can vote once a day through Nov. 1.
