Norwalk Student. -1 Education Foundation Activities and Events By Lori Miller, President THANK YOU NORWALK!! The Drive One 4UR School event was a huge suc- cess! We had 342 community members join us to test drive a car. We are waiting on Ford to tell us about final numbers/valid surveys, but we are pretty sure we will get the $6,000 we set out to earn!!! The next step in the Drive One event is a video con- test. We were asked to make a video about how we would use our money to support our school. The video was submitted by the April 9 deadline, before the drive event took place. The video will be placed against other videos around the country in a bracket style vote using Facebook. The video with the most votes moves onto the next bracket. This competition is for a max of an additional $10,000 for Norwalk Schools. You can pre- view the video at http://youtu.be/HvfnbC5TbU. NSEF will be mass emailing our drivers when it is time to vote! You can help show people around the country what a supportive community Norwalk is by voting and help- ing us win the grand prizeI! Stay tuned! We are planning on using the money to fulfill grant applications and complete the Clicker Campaign. Teach- ers may submit grant applications for the fall grant cycle for their ."piece of the pie"- see our website for more information, www.norwalkstudentfoundation.org.
