A local dentist has pledged $10,000 to the school that receives the most votes in an online school spirit award contest.
Buford dentist Ashley P. Curington said she created the Georgia School Spirit Award Program as a way to assist her patients and their schools.
“I’ve been practicing dentistry for more than 15 years and have formed lifelong relationships with many people all across Georgia,” said Dr. Curington in a released statement.
According to the press release, the program is designed to support education in Georgia with an unrestricted use cash donation for the school demonstrating the most spirit through online voting. The winning school’s principal and a selected student will be featured in an upcoming 2012 issue of Gwinnett Magazine.
Any brick-and-mortar Georgia K-12 school is eligible. No home or online schools will be considered. To vote, visit the school spirit award program website. Voting is not limited. Each participant may vote as often as he or she likes. Voting ends at midnight on Jan. 31, 2012.
