Arp Elementary School Up For Clorox ‘Power A Bright Future’ Contest
Clorox is currently holding a contest called “Power A Bright Future” and the top vote-getter wins up to $50,000! One of our very own schools from right here in East Texas, Arp Elementary School, is currently one of the contenders!
If won, the school says the money would go to help provide a safe place to play for the 450 students at the school.
The older elementary kids do not have a playground. The area they play on is considered somewhat unsafe due to runoff areas and places that animals appear to be living. This grant would allow the ground work to be done including the building of retaining walls to help ensure the students safety. It would also allow the school to buy new up to code playground equipment.
Clorox created the competition to help fund new or ongoing programs that allow children to play, create and explore. Even if Arp is not the top overall vote-getter, they can still earn a $25,000 grant by winning in the “Play,” “Explore” or “Create” categories. Currently, Arp is 31 in the” Play” category!
