Aberdeen Elementary School Wins Our $1,000 Prize!

The winning public school in our February promotion is Aberdeen Elementary in the Aberdeen School District! The prize is $1,000 paid directly to the school, courtesy of an anonymous donor.

Thank you to everyone who participated and to the parents, teachers, grandparents, and other supporters who entered on behalf of your favorite school. Our winning school had the highest ratio of new sign-ups to school enrollment. (Contest guidelines are included below.)

The enthusiasm our contest generated is a testament to your commitment to ensuring strong public schools for all Mississippi children. We implore you to communicate that commitment to your legislators and state leaders. You can find contact information for legislators in your school district here. Let them know you strongly support full funding of public education and directing public funds to only public (not private) schools.

Congratulations to Aberdeen Elementary School, and thank you for supporting The Parents’ Campaign!
