Ti Elementary vies for security grant

TICONDEROGA —The Ticonderoga Elementary-Middle School has been nominated for a Together For Safer Schools grant from Stanley Security.

The Ticonderoga Elementary-Middle School could win up to $200,000 in installed products and services from the firm to help secure the facility, Principal John Donohue said in a news release.

The funds are awarded to the schools that receive the most votes at the website between now and Dec. 13.

“We need support from our local community to vote and help Ticonderoga Elementary-Middle School win,” Donohue said.

“It’s important that our school improves its security so we can focus on what’s really important — education.”

He said school administrators, staff, teachers, students, parents and the local community may vote daily for the chance to win. 

The school with the most votes will win one grand prize of $200,000 in Stanley Security installed products and services.

Three runners-up will win individual prizes of $100,000 in products and services. Each vote also counts as an entry for the school to win a daily prize.

Winners will be notified in December, and prizes will be awarded in 2014.
