SAYREVILLE — Assemblyman John S. Wisniewski is encouraging local residents to support Sayreville’s Dwight D. Eisenhower Elementary School’s bid for playground equipment in the Clorox Power a Bright Future contest. Anyone 13 years or older is eligible to vote in the competition. Voting began at the end of October and will close on Friday December 9th.
“I encourage everyone to vote for the Eisenhower school’s proposal to build a playground for Sayreville’s young students,” said Wisniewski. “Voting is an easy opportunity to show your support for our schools and our children. Cast your vote and then ask your family and friends to participate.”
The Dwight D. Eisenhower Elementary School has a school population of over 560 students in grades K-3. The school is competing with more than 1600 schools nationwide in the annual Clorox event.
Schools compete in one of three categories — Play, Create or Explore — for a grant of up to $50,000. One overall winner is chosen as the top prize winner. Additional winners will be chosen in each of the three categories and will be awarded a $25,000 grant. All of these winners will be determined by votes cast by the public either on the Web or with a text message. In addition to these prizes, there will be a Judge’s award of $25,000, which will be determined by a panel of judges from among all the entries. The Eisenhower School is one of over 500 entries in the Play category.
The public can vote for the Eisenhower School’s proposal by texting clorox3713 to 44144 and on the Web at http://www.powerabrightfuture.com/gallery/detail/?nid=690. Voters can cast one vote per day both on the Web and via text.
