ONLY A FEW MORE DAYS LEFT TO VOTE FOR SOLAR ONE TO WIN A $25,000 GRANT FOR ITS K-12 EDUCATION PROGRAMS
Do you like ice cream, fast cars and environmental education? It’s not that often that these three things come together, but when they do, it can only mean one thing: The Jimmie Johnson Foundation Blue Bunny Helmet of Hope Challenge is on!
Solar One is one of the 10 semi-finalists eligible for a $25,000 grant from the Jimmie Johnson Foundation, and the only one based in New York. In all, five grants are available through the Blue Bunny Helmet of Hope program. A public vote will take place April 17 through 24 to determine the five grant winners. Solar One needs YOU to go to www.helmetofhope.org to show your support by voting before April 24th!
This grant would support Solar One’s Green Design Lab™ (GDL), the only curricular blueprint of its kind that looks at the school building as both a laboratory for learning and a tool for environmental action. In addition to the grant, Solar One will receive special recognition on Johnson’s race helmet during the NASCAR Sprint Cup series race on July 27th at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. To date, the Blue Bunny Helmet program has contributed more than $560,000 to 71 different charities. How cool is that?!
