Follett Challenge - Thank you!
Posted 01/30/2017 11:33AM
With more than 8,000 votes and 2,000 views to our video submission, McGee Middle School finished in the top 10 in voting in the Follett Challenge's national education contest, which means McGee is assured the People's Choice award of $8,000 for our school!
We can't thank you enough for the support, the sharing of posts and emails and spreading the word. So many people in our community helped - from the grocery stores and public library, to the pizza restaurants and hair salons, to the sports organizations and preschools - everyone came together to support our school district. Thank you!
Next, McGee will need to wait until Feb. 28 to see whether the judges think McGee deserves the semifinal prize of $30,000. Either way, we are very proud and grateful for the community's support of education.
