From Cathie Pedersen via the Marshall Park Neighborhood Association listserve (note, Capitol Hill Elementary is the only school in Oregon in the finals for this grant):
Wahoo! Our Capitol Hill ES Playground project is one of ten finalists to win up to $15,000 toward new playground equipment. We were competing with 118 applications!
Now we need your help! To receive the grant we need you to vote for our playground project as your favorite.
It’s really simple, just go to http://projects.kaboom.org/vote_2011 and find the event title “CAPITOL HILL ES PLAYGROUND.” You can watch a quick video about our playground project, register on the KaBOOM! website. Then click the big “VOTE” button. It couldn't be easier.
*You can vote once every 24 hours from now until May 10! Bookmark the link above and vote again tomorrow.
Our kids need your help! The more times you vote, the better our chance to win the money for our playground project. We would really appreciate it if you could send this along to your friends and family.
We thank you, and the kids thank you for all of your help!
