Positively Richmond: Kersey Creek Elementary School

Posted: Updated:

HANOVER (WRIC) – A video from a Hanover elementary school could win a $10,000 dollar prize in a national contest.

Kersey Creek Elementary School's entry in Scottie's Tissue's Trees Rock Contest is one of 12 national finalists. The video that gets the most votes online between now and February 14 gets the money.

"It's mostly about us liking trees and how important they are," says Nicholas Andrews. "And we did a whole thing about what the garden can do for us what the money can do."

The kids would spend the money on tools and infrastructure and improvements.

"Oh, it would be wonderful," says Julie Hendricks. "Our garden is a great environment for our children to go outside in. We call it our outdoor classroom."

There's also another goal for the Garden Coordinators: healthy eating.

"If they could plant, grow and harvest their own crop from beginning to end they'd be more likely to eat their vegetables."

"Our garden's wonderful but we want to make it better so vote Scotties Trees Rock Kersey Creek," says Lainie Loucas.

"It's just a matter of a few hundred votes so if you could get out there and vote for us logon once a day to scottiestreesrock.com.
