Clorox Grant Contest Helps Create Brighter Futures for Kids

It’s a tough time for schools. In the district where my sister teaches, they closed down several schools and many teachers were laid off. Nationwide, other schools are closing their doors, decreasing staff or cutting valuable programs, such as music or art.

In response, the Clorox Company has launched the 2010 Power A Bright Future grant contest, a school grant program to help fund these vital school programs. Parents and teachers across the country can nominate school programs for a chance to receive a $50,000 grand-prize grant or one of three $20,000 grants from the Clorox Company to help provide critically needed resources to diminishing school programs.

It’s easy to nominate a school program. Simply visit between now and September 27, 2010 to learn how to nominate a school. Once the nominations have closed, people across the U.S. can vote for their favorite program between October 5, 2010 and November 1, 2010. The program that receives the highest number of votes will be awarded the $50,000 grand-prize grant, and the next top vote-getters in each of the three categories (Learn, Play and Create) will be awarded a $20,000 grant. The final Power A Bright Future grant winners will be announced on December 8, 2010.

This is a great way to provide much-needed assistance to schools in need. For official rules and to nominate a school program, visit

    Collinswood Launguage Academy seems like a good pick. They are really in need and close to the big high school winners right now.
