Durham Public Schools poised to win $100,000

by Susan Herst

As reported yesterday in the Durham Herald-Sun, Jordan High and the NC School of Science and Math could EACH win $50,000 in December’s Pepsi Refresh contest if Durham citizens continue to vote, (http://www.heraldsun.com/view/full_story/10796396/article-Contest-for-Pepsi-funds-nearing-its-end).

Voting is online and/or by text every day in December. The top 10 vote getters win. As of Tuesday, Dec 28th, Jordan High is #8 in the nation. NCSSM is #13. A third Durham entry, to help students earn a laptop computer, is #271.  With just three days left, the public must vote for our schools to win.

These $50,000 grants to support public schools will benefit everyone. Jordan High will use the money for much-needed white boards, science tables and desks.  NCSSM will use the money for a statewide food drive.

To text your vote, text the folllowing codes to 73774 (Pepsi):
  • 104617 (Jordan High: Help update worn-out classrooms and ignite community support)
  • 104425 (NC School of Science and Math food drive).

Pepsi Refresh grants are very competitive, so all Durham must vote for our schools to win!  Thanks for caring and asking others to vote; please contact me if you have questions at susanherst@urbandurham.com. Thank you!
