OK, so you may be pro-charter or anti-charter, pro-Obama or anti-Obama. But you’ve got to admit it would be pretty cool for the Denver School of Science and Technology to win the commencement competition and have the President show up to address graduating seniors and their families. Here’s a message from DSST CEO Bill Kurtz about how you can help:
WE NEED YOUR HELP to bring President Obama to Colorado to speak at Denver School of Science and Technology’s graduation! Please help DSST win the White House Commencement Challenge by voting here: http://www.whitehouse.gov/commencement <http://www.whitehouse.gov/commencement> .
Your participation matters! At the website, you’ll be asked to rate each school on a scale of 1-5 (5 is the best). Schools will be presented in random order. We hope you give DSST a 5! The three schools with the highest average ratings relative to the other schools move to the next level. The President will make the final selection from these 3 schools and will visit that high school later this spring.
Voting began this morning at 8AM EDT (6AM MDT) and lasts until Thursday, April 29 at 11:59PM EDT. Please vote now! The White House will announce the winner on May 4.
Please vote and pass along this e-mail to your whole network of friends on e-mail, Facebook, MySpace, Linkedin and other social networking sites. Help us go viral by encouraging everyone you know to vote and pass it along to their networks! Here’s our Facebook address: http://www.facebook.com/pages/DSST-Public-Schools/110651475641159.
This is a great opportunity to highlight for the entire country the innovative and passionate work being done in Colorado to improve education and help our kids be successful in college thus becoming the future leaders of our state and nation.
