We are certainly in the throws of Back to School. I know many of you have already started – where did the summer go? Sadly, many students have to attend schools that are in need of improvement. This includes structural repairs, need for books or even upgrades in technology. Famous Footwear agrees and they are here to help one lucky person!
They have launched a new contest called Step It Up For School. This is a national contest created to inspire students to advocate for their high school to be improved. The grand prize winner will win $100,000!! They will be able to donate $75,000 to their school of choice and will be able to pocket $25,000 for themselves (perfect to save for that college tuition). Make sure that you get signed up as soon as possible as others will vote on your proposal and the one with the most votes wins (which means the longer yours is posted, the more chances you have for votes). Here is more information as to how the contest works:
- Participants can visit Famous Footwear’s Facebook page for details on how to nominate their high school to receive a donation of up to $75,000 by writing a 250-word essay explaining how their school would use the funds.
- Famous Footwear Facebook fans can vote once each day for their favorite essay, and the high school that accumulates the highest number of votes will receive up to $75,000 towards a transformation project.
- The writer of the essay that garners the most votes will receive a cash prize worth up to $25,000. For every vote cast, Famous Footwear will add $1 to the prize, up to $75,000 for the school donation and up to $25,000 for the individual cash prize.
- The grand prize will be announced in late September. Entrants must be at least 13 years old.
