ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

Highland Elementary School has an extra $1,000 thanks to supporters and the UnityPoint Health Imagine the Amazing online voting contest.

Highland racked up 38,544 votes in the two-week span of the contest, which ended Sept. 30.

“We are thrilled to learn we will receive $1,000,” Principal Jane O’Leary, said. “We had one parent who started challenging other parents to vote for our school, and it created a ripple effect in getting out the vote for Highland Elementary. We have such awesome support from our parents.”

The school plans to use the prize money to help make improvements to the school playground.

“We have been working very hard to make our playground accessible to all students,” O’Leary said. “The $1,000 prize from UnityPoint Health is going to help us move closer to our goal of being able to have a surface that is wheelchair accessible.
