Applications open for school makeovers

4/11/2014, 6:01 a.m.

Students and their supporters can apply for a school makeover in the Georgia United Credit Union’s School Crashers competition through April 30.

The credit union is offering schools the opportunity to have a facility makeover.

Applicants must complete an entry form and write a 250-word statement describing why their school deserves a makeover.

The grand prize winner will receive funding for their school makeover project and runner-up schools will receive mini-grants for their improvement projects.

Accredited public or private elementary, middle or high schools statewide are eligible. You can nominate a school even if you are not a current student.

Winners will be announced the week of May 19 and the Winning School Crash Event will take place in late July prior to schools reopening for the 2014-15 school year.

Community members, employees, students and parents can join Georgia United employees to volunteer.
