$50K Just a Vote Away for Flocktown Program

Residents can text, vote online for school's Riding the Technology Wave initiative.

Would you send a simple text or spend a few seconds online if it meant $50,000 in return?

Well, now’s your chance.

The Clorox Company’s “Power a Bright Future” grant program was created to help schools fund new or ongoing programs that allow children to play, create and explore, according to a press release from Flocktown-Kossmann School.

Update: As of Monday, Dec. 10, the school was in the top 200 finalists, sitting at number 180.

After a competitive national nomination period, the school is now a finalist to be awarded the grant for its Riding the Technology Wave program, but it will take strong support from the community.

From Nov. 12 to Dec. 19, residents age 13 and older can vote once a day for the program they believe is most deserving of the grant either online or via text message.

The program receiving the highest number of votes will be awarded a $50,000 grand prize grant, with a $25,000 grant going to runner-up vote getters. Clorox’s judging panel will select three additional schools, one in each category, to also win a $25,000 judge’s choice grant.

Votes can be cast in two ways:

Votes can be made once a day through 11:59 p.m. Dec. 19.
