The voting has already begun, so we will keep this short and sweet!
First graders at Anderson Elementary School entered a contest last week and are counting on your votes to help them win the grand prize. The contest, created by Flagship Carpets and SchoolOutfitters.com, asked students in classrooms accross the country to design a rug and submit it on the School Outfitters Facebook page to then be voted upon by the public.
Anderson teacher Diana Klingelhafer became aware of the contest last last week and immediately began a project to enter her first grade class into the running.
Klingelhafer came up with the basic idea for the rug on her computer and her students selected colors and images for the rug. Students also used spelling words to decorate the rug.
Now that the entry phase of the contest is complete, Klingelhafer and her students are asking people to vote for their design. Winners will receive their rug drawing printed on a 7'6" x 12' rug by Flagship Carpets.
Here's how to vote:
Vote on Klingelhafer's classroom rug design by simply clicking on the photo of the rug on the contest Facebook page and then clicking "like." Find the correct photo by scrolling down the Facebook page until you see the "Large Schools Category." Click the seventh photo and then click "like." An example of the Anderson students' rug design can be found in the photo section of this article.
Voting ends at 12 p.m. January 28, according to contest rules.
