Local School Awarded Old National Bank "Tools for Schools" Grant

From Local Sources 

AREA WIDE -- Old National Bank recently completed its fourth annual Tools for Schools grant promotion, a company-wide campaign created to help get the school year started right for countless students in need in local communities.

The Tools for Schools grant promotion was conducted during the month of September.  Visits were encouraged to visit Old National’s Facebook page to vote for a school to receive a Tools for Schools grant. A voting page was created for each of Old National’s regions throughout Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, and Wisconsin with participating school districts pre-populated to make the voting collection easy. 112,022 votes were cast for nearly 1,180 schools in five different states.  Grants for $1,000 are now being awarded to the schools with the most votes in each region.  A $6,000 grant is going to Pine Ridge Elementary School in Birdseye, Indiana for receiving the most votes overall.  The winning schools are listed below.
