Help Helix Win $50,000 to be Used for Community Projects

Helix can win a $50,000 grant by getting the most votes for their project on www.powerabrightfuture.com.

Helix Charter High School is a nominee in The Clorox Company’s Power a Bright Future grant program and is in the running to win up to $50,000. If we win, the school will use this grant to fund community-based, student-run Senior Projects. All Helix students are required to complete a Senior Project to graduate. Currently, many students choose to do projects that benefit the surrounding communities; however, due to the costs associated with a large-scale project, many are done on a small scale. If Helix were to win this grant, the projects would not face those funding limitations and students could affect our community in a much bigger way!

As school budgets continue to shrink nationwide, The Clorox Company’s Power A Bright Future program was created to help schools fund new or ongoing programs that provide kids with the opportunity to play, create and explore. Everyone can help! To help Helix win this grant, we need our neighbors’ votes! Each supporter can vote once per day through Dec. 12, 2012 until 11:59pm EDT, using this link:https://powerabrightfuture.clorox.com/nominees/detail/?nid=1009 or via text from their mobile phone. The site has been a bit slow, due to all the voting, so you can text this code: 1009pbf to the number: 95248 to vote for Helix.

Hi Jenn - unfortunately, the link isn't working when you click on it from your blog post. The URL is https://powerabrightfuture.clorox.com/nominees/detail/?nid=1009. I just submitted my vote!

Thanks, Cori. Don't know why it's not working - it's the same as what you have there! (And I can't figure out how to edit my post! I'll get better at this over time, I'm sure!) Thanks, again.
