Homesteader School Competes for Award of $20 000. How Can You Help?

Today I received an email I never would have expected.  My blog was forwarded to a local school and, as a local gardener, this same school has solicited my assistance in forwarding their cause, and I am delighted to do so! Homesteader School is a small elementary school in north-east Edmonton with a goal of constructing an outdoor classroom/garden.  What an inspiration to budding gardeners!  Competing in Majesta's Trees of Knowledge Competition, Homesteader School has progressed to the finals, being in 6th place and they are the only finalists in all of Alberta!!

Homesteader School needs votes.  When you visit Majesta, you can vote for the school of your choice from the selected entrants.  The winner receives an award of $20,000 towards their project. Contest closes in 24 days.  Here's a little added incentive:  when you vote you may also fill out the optional form to enter a contest to win $10,000 for yourself!  So everyone, especially Edmontonians, click away and vote for Homesteader School to win!

Homesteader School has been featured on the front page of today's (April 18, 2012) Edmonton Journal, previously on CTV, CBC Radio, the Edmonton Examiner and Metro News.  Voting is open to Canadian residents age 18 and over with a valid email address.  

Oh, and one very important thing:  Please VOTE DAILY for Homesteader School between now and May 11, 2011!

Catch the updates on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/#!/pages/Homesteader-Elementary-School/204888616280449 and Twitter  (https://twitter.com/#!/HomesteaderKids).

Best Wishes to a most deserving school!

... thank you so much for any assistance you can provide us in obtaining votes for our project. Although we are reaching many people to vote, we are having trouble getting the word out that we need people to vote everyday, until May 11th.

We will keep you posted on how we end up in the contest, and our classroom/garden will go ahead even if we don’t secure the first place prize of $20,000.
