North High School’s Key Club is looking for your vote. The club is one of six finalists in State Bank & Trust’s “$10,000 Pay It Forward Fans’ Choice Facebook Contest.”
The contest, hosted on a Facebook page set up by the bank, challenged the community earlier this spring to campaign how it should distribute $10,000 to worthy causes in the community. The entries were videos, up to three minutes in length.
North’s Key Club has focused much of its time and effort in recent years on a local and regional campaign, “Kids Against Hunger.” Club members fundraise throughout the year in order to purchase meal supplies, which they later pack and ship to the Great Plains Food Bank and other distributors. This year the club has raised $2,500 for the campaign.
The grand prize winner of the State Bank contest will receive $5,000 in Pay It Forward funds. Five runners-up will receive $1,000 in Pay It Forward funds. Voting ends on Thursday, April 19.
