Help Melican Get an iPad Lab

Melican Middle School would like to purchase an iPad lab to help us “go green.” We see our technology tools as the means for developing the 21st Century Skills that we need to succeed.

I am writing to ask for your help with an unusual funding opportunity for Melican. 

In our quest to seek out financial support we’ve submitted a grant proposal for an iPad Lab through the Clorox Education Grant Program: Power a Bright Future.  A $50,000 grant will be awarded to the proposal receiving the most online votes, and additional $25,000 grants will be given to other popular proposals. 

Votes can be registered from different computers every day from Nov. 5 through Dec. 12, 2012

We need as much support as we can get with this; it’s as simple as voting for our grant through the Clorox website.  Please spread the word to friends and coworkers using any networking that makes sense for you.  This is a situation where voting “early and often” is actually possible!

You can read about and vote for our grant: Help Melican Middle School “Go Green” with an iPad Lab, using this link.
 
Winning this grant may be a long shot, but the possibility of supplementing our one iPad lab with $50,000 was an opportunity we just couldn’t pass up.
