Bing asked, schools responded and now the winners have been announced! Four schools from Oakland, CA to Atlanta, GA will receive big prizes (Four 1st place prizes of $50,000 and a $100,000 grand prize!) from Bing as part of their Our School Needs contest.
We are proud to have been a part of this amazing contest that will make a difference in schools across the country. To better understand what we mean, this funding will:
- Help students in a Fort Carson, CO elementary school keep in touch with their parents and loved ones overseas by purchasing appropriate technology.
- Reverse the effects of severe budget cuts in Bayside, NY enabling a school to provide basic school supplies to arts, music and after school programs.
- Forge bonds through music, art and technology, between students at an Oakland, CA high school that has students from 30 different countries.
- Protect students in an Atlanta, GA elementary school from their leaking roof during rainstorms.
99Papers.org applauds all of the winners as well as the hundreds of other schools that have benefited from the voters of this competition. Please visit www.bing.com/ourschoolneeds to view details on all the winners.
