Middle School Vice Principal Mark Warford has submitted a district wide $250,000 grant application to upgrade the district's dishwashers to more energy efficient models.
Only two $250,000 grants will be given every month, though, so competition will likely be fierce in this category.
Steil said she's been trying to get a grant for the Step Up program for the past three years without any success. The open-ended nature of the Refresh Everything grant makes her hopeful, though.
"Because we're not labeled a school in need, it's very hard to find grants," she said.
Now that the application is submitted, what Steil needs most are votes. Those 13 and older can vote once per day at www.refresheverything.com.
