Help Amundsen win a Driver's Education grant by voting online


Please read the following appeal from Amundsen PE/Driver's Ed teachers, Mr. Harlston and Mr. Binder:

We need your help. We have entered Amundsen in the State Farm Insurance "CelebrateMyDrive" campaign. The winning school receives a $100,000 grant to use at their discretion. As of last Friday there were only 11 other schools signed up. So, our chances for winning are better than the lottery!






We'd like to use the grant to update Room 107 and purchase new cars for the after school range program which currently has cars from 1997. (Gas was much less expensive then!)

We need to get the word out to get votes and Amundsen wins! Anyone and everyone can vote! We need you, your students, friends, family, neighbors and Facebook friends! Please spread the word to everyone and bring the $100,000 back to Amundsen High School.

Voting is from September 10 - 15 (Monday - Saturday). To vote, go to: www.celebratemydrive.com and follow the prompts.

Please help us take up this great cause by voting daily and spread the word to as many people as you can.

Thanks so much for your help!
