Vote for Cedar Way and vote often


I’ll be brief because you have some work to do.

If you’re a regular MLTnews reader you probably know that Cedar Way Elementary has been nominated for a Pepsi Refresh grant to help fund a new playground. For more information about the grant/project click here.

Every month the top 10 organizations in each grant level are awarded the grant. In Cedar Way’s case, $50,000. December is the 3rd month that Cedar Way has pushed really hard to get votes from the community. They spent most of the 1st month down in the 70’s, moved up to the 40’s in the second month and this month, December, they have been climbing and are currently at #7 #9 #12.

If Cedar Way can climb a couple more spots in to the top 10 and stay there for the month of December, they wil be awarded $50,000 towards their new playground. Additionally, the Edmonds School District has agreed to MATCH any funds resulting in a total of $100,000 for a new playground for Cedar Way Elementary.
