Posted on Jan. 19 2017 by Patricia Gibson, Communications DirectorIn the past few years, the Media Center at Marion High School has undergone an amazing transformation, from a staid space with somewhat limited uses into a vibrant center for exploration, collaboration, and innovation. Now, MHS is aiming to win a grant from a national educational company to fund continued technology investments — and YOU can help us win!
From Monday, Jan. 23, through Friday, Jan. 27, a video produced by Marion High School students and staff will be posted on the Follett Challenge site, and anyone in the world can vote once per day to make us one of 10 People’s Choice video winners, a prize worth $8,000. We need you to help us earn this prize! Please make a plan to vote every day next week, and to share this opportunity with your family and friends, too!
MHS students work on the Follett Challenge video in late December 2016. Vote once a day per email address Monday, Jan. 23, through Friday, Jan. 27.
The People’s Choice award is just the beginning, though. Your votes will also play a role in Marion High School’s chances to win goods and services from Follett Corp. worth up to $60,000. The public voting will factor in as 20 percent of our final score in the grant competition. We just can’t do this without YOU!
These prizes would enable MHS to continue the incredible reinvention of the Media Center into a 21st Century learning commons that promotes and facilitates not only technology-driven education but also collaboration, communication, creativity, critical thinking, problem-solving, and more. These skills are not only important for success in the classrooms of Marion High School, but they are truly life-changing skills that will benefit our students no matter where their paths lead after graduation.
We are excited to be part of the 2017 Follett Challenge, and we hope you will enjoy our video and vote for us every day of the competition!
