Power a Bright Future for a school with Clorox

Power-a-Bright-Future.jpgSchool funding/tution/whatever doesn't begin to cover everything schools need, much less the things that would enrich kids' experiences there. Things that are viewed as "extras" are often cut or ignored.

Unfortunately, that often includes physical education.

Sports and activities have always been a big part of our lives. We've been fortunate that our kids have been able to play soccer, basketball, volleyball, rugby, bowling, baseball, track and more with great instruction and proper facilities. But, not all kids have that and they depend on hard work and the kindness of others to get the physical education equipment and facilities they need.

That's why I’m working with Clorox’s Power A Bright Future K-12 school grant program to get parents and their teens (13 and older) to vote and help schools win grants of up to $50,000 to help fund new or ongoing initiatives that provide kids with the opportunity to learn and grow.

Nominations are in and this year Clorox will award seven grants totaling $200,000 including:

• One Grand-prize $50,000 grant
• Three $25,000 Category winner grants (One winner will be selected by popular vote in each
category; Play, Create and Explore)
• Three $25,000 Judge’s pick grants (A panel of Clorox judges will select one winner based on
merit in each category)

Get out there and vote!

One of the great things about this program is that teenagers can vote, too! What a great way for your older kids to help their peers!

From November 12-December 19, 2012, anyone 13 and older can vote online and via text:

• Visit www.powerabrightfuture.com from a computer or mobile phone to do it, or visit the site to find your favorite school’s text to vote code. You can vote once online and once by text every day.

• Voting ends on December 19, 2012 and the winners will be announced later this year.

Y.O.L.O. You Only Learn Once!

To encourage teens to vote, Disney's Bella Thorne of "Shake it Up" is sharing her photos on Instagram (@bellathornelovesyou), and kids 13 can share photos showing how a grant would make a difference for their school and community at a special Power A Bright Future! Instagram Contest (Photos must be tagged #yolopabf to be eligible for consideration).

Disclosure: I am being compensated by The Clorox Company to talk about the Power A Bright Future school grant program.. All opinions are mine, and I am happy to be a part of something to help schools.
