Congratulations to our two Optional School Application iPad winners!
Amber Trice and CoCo Thomas both visited their fair share of schools during the application period to see first-hand what schools had to offer to their students. They also took the time to enter our contest, open to all parents who visited schools for the Optional Schools Application.
Their contest entries came from Maplewood High School and Meigs Middle Magnet School, where they filled out our short survey, which was also an entry form.
Thank you for playing, and we hope the iPads come in handy!
