HILLSBOROUGH SCHOOL DISTRICT
With the school district looking to raise the overall graduating rate to 90 percent by the year 2020, it's launching a logo contest to help brand the "90 by 2020" initiative. The contest began Feb. 15 (Wednesday) and the district will accept electronic submissions until 11:55 pm on March 24. The contest is only open to Hillsborough County Public School students in grades 3 through post-secondary. Participants under the age of 18 must obtain parental or guardian consent to enter. For more information, visit tbtim.es/18z9.
The school district now offers volunteers a chance to apply online. By making the process better, easier, and faster, more volunteers and community partners can embrace the program mantra of "You Empower Students." The Volunteer Services Department is committed to working with volunteers. It's hoped that volunteers and community partners will share skills, knowledge and attitudes with students to help "prepare them for life." For more information, visit tbtim.es/18za.
