Help East Middle School Win $20,000 in the Lots2Give Contest!


East Middle School needs your support as it vies to win $20,000 in Big Lots’ Lots2Give 2013 national video contest. East Middle School is among 186 schools nationwide competing for a piece of the $120,000 cash prizes, and administrators plan to use the prize money to construct a state-of-the-art science lab for students to explore scientific concepts.

The polls are now open, so vote early and often!

“East Middle School is looking for the public’s help to build a state of the art Science Lab,” said Principal Kelly Silva. “A new Science Lab will be a powerful way to engage our students through hands-on experiences. It will also provide students the opportunity to gain skills and knowledge to better prepare them for high school and college, and help them succeed as leaders in the 21st century.”

The contest is part of the 6th annual Lots2Give program launched by retail giant Big Lots to help schools in need of financial support across America.

Big Lots asked participating schools to put their creativity to the test by submitting a short video and brief essay explaining why their school is in need of financial support. Cash prizes include thirty $2,000 third place prizes, four $5,000 second place prizes, two $10,000 first place prizes and one $20,000 grand prize.

From June 10 through July 7, the public can vote for their favorite video entries up to three times a day by visiting Those votes will determine the schools that will share $120,000 in cash prizes.

In addition to the Lots2Give video contest, participating schools will be the recipients of an in-store donation program. Customers can help selected schools by donating $5 or $1 at participating Big Lots stores through July 7. One hundred percent of donations will go to participating schools.
