Avery is running a program to “Give back to schools”. It’s based on voting from the community, much like the Reader’s Digest campaign a couple years back. The difference is, however, that Reader’s Digest is working hard to keep the voting very realistic (you’ll see when you vote). You can vote once per day for each school and login either with your facebook account, or with a standalone account.
The vote has just begun — and runs until September 14. As a result, if the community comes together and regularly votes for schools (hopefully all the local schools), even a small town like Westlake Village can do well.

Can a small school win?
From Avery’s site, “Henry Elementary, in Franklin County, Va., received more than 44,000 votes last year placing it first among all schools, despite an enrollment of less than 250 students. The school credits students, staff, parents, friends, family, acquaintances, customers, business owners, sheriff and police departments, and even a member of the House of Delegates who supported the school by voting every day. The school expects the supplies they won to last them for several yearsa big help for many families that are struggling right now.”
