Hello people of tumblr! I need to ask one simple favor of you. To vote for my school in Samsung’s “Solve For Tomorrow” engineering competition! If my school wins, we will be granted $120,000 in electronics for the school! This means new computers, which we desperately need since we havent gotten new ones since 2004 (Im not even exaggerating. Its been that long).
More than 80% of the students in my school district live in poverty. This qualifies them for free breakfast and lunch at school. For many students, those overly-dry hamburgers are the best meal they get all day. And what happens when summer comes around and they stop getting food from school? They go hungry.
Living in the urban setting we do, most people don’t have the space to grow a garden to supplement their diets. Thats why the engineering kids at my school came up with the principal of vertical farming. I’m not an engineering student, so if you’d like more information on that, please watch the video in the link I’m about to provide.
Thats where you come in. Please take 30 seconds to click the following link and vote for my school. All you need is an email address, name, and zip code. (If you’re uncomfortable giving out your zip code, use 16510). You can vote once a day per email with as many emails as you’d like to vote with.
Every vote counts! After you’re done voting, if you could please reblog this to spread the word it would be very appreciated and help so much! Thank you all!
