267. Vote to Choose Our 2015 Back to School Photo Contest Winners

Home Newsroom 267. Vote to Choose Our 2015 Back to School Photo Contest Winners

We received so many fun photos in our Back to School Photo Contest that we don’t have the heart to simply throw names into a hat to select our winners.  These images are meant to be shared and enjoyed!  So we’ve created a quick poll and are asking YOU to help us choose.

We’ve lined up four fun prizes from Deer Park Town Center to help you either a.) enjoy some well-deserved pampering or b.) add some of the season’s hottest new merchandise to your student’s back-to-school wardrobe:

You’ll find the poll to cast your vote below all images entered into our contest.  (To cut to the chase and cast your vote immediately, CLICK HERE.)  The four entries that receive the most votes will each win one of the four prizes.  We’ll leave the poll open until the end of the day this Thursday, September 17th and we’ll announce the winners on Friday, September 18th. After our contest’s conclusion, we’ll also share a special video message from Barrington 220 Schools Superintendent, Dr. Brian Harris!

You’re welcome to vote for as many images as you’d like, but you can only vote once.  Good luck!

Today, in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s birthday and the start of our WORDS MATTER campaign for No Name-Calling Week, bring your family together to talk about the incredible power of words. Words can harm, they can heal, they can inspire and they can change the world. Dr. King is considered by many to be one of the greatest speakers of all time, using his words, his passion, and his conviction to lead one of the most important movements in our nation's history. For today's family activity, talk about some of Dr. King's most famous quotes.

Here are few links to help:

Talk about the quotes that have meaning for you and the power that Dr. King's words have had to change the world.
