Mitchell School moves up in $50,000 Pepsi challenge
Kim Wendt, 8th grade science teacher at Mitchell Middle School, passed along the news this morning that the school is currently in 12th place in a Pepsi challenge that could provide $50,000 to revamp the school's science classrooms, built in 1974.
Actually, we just checked the competition website: Mitchell's project is now in 11th place -- and the top ten finishers each win $50,000!
All it will take to win is free, no-strings-attached votes, cast over the internet.
C'mon, everybody, log on and vote! You can -- and should! -- vote daily until the contest ends on April 30. Go here to vote. The site also details how the money would be spent, on a chemistry science kitchen, a computer lab/digital media center, a writing cafe, smartboards, a science library and more.
