Brookside Public School is one of ten finalists in a nationwide school competition for $20,000 in funding for an outdoor classroom.
But it needs the public’s assistance to come out on top.
Until May 11, Brookside needs people to vote on-line at least once a day at the Majesta Tree of Knowledge website.
The schools that submitted applications were judged on their essays about why they should be selected, plan for the classroom, and community funding partners.
The nine runners up will receive $1,000.
The goal of the competition is to generate inspiring, creative ideas where students can learn “outside the traditional classroom.”
