Please Vote!

McCoy P. is a 5th grader at my school. He is one of 12 nationwide elementary school finalists in a video project sponsored by Scotties Facial Tissues.  Contestants each created a video on the importance of trees -- to themselves, their school, and their community.  In his video, McCoy also explains how Woodridge is currently trying to beautify a green space between the 4th and 5th grade hallways, by developing different outdoor habitats including desert, tropical, grasslands, a pond, learning hut and raised garden beds. You can see the incredible plans in the video. 

McCoy and Woodridge NEED YOUR HELP!   Winners will be chosen by an online vote starting TODAY through February 15th at www.scottiestreesrock.com.  If McCoy receives the most votes, Woodridge wins $10,000 to use toward the outdoor space.  You can vote once a day for the next month.  

McCoy is an amazing young man. He is extremely creative. During lunch, you can find him teaching 5th graders how to create movies and the tips and tricks of animation software. He's a natural born teacher!

Initially, it will ask for your name, address, phone number...please don't let this deter you from voting. Just deselect the check mark at the end and you won't get the spam stuff! You only have to do that once. After that, you just need your email address.

Please vote!
