Vote for classroom projects online in Sonic campaign

People can vote online for public school classroom projects eligible for $500,000 in funds donated by Sonic Drive-In, part of its 2012 Limeades for Learning campaign. The projects include some from Prescott Valley and Chino Valley.

Since 2009, Sonic has donated more than $2 million to public school classrooms through the program.

The classroom projects with the most votes each week will be fully funded by Sonic. Anyone with a valid email address can vote online once per day at www.limeadesforlearning.com until Oct. 29.

A Chino Valley teacher is seeking funding to buy 35 recorders for a music program and a wall chart of music notes. Another Chino Valley teacher would like to buy an MP3 player to bring music into a kindergarten classroom, while another teacher would like to buy a document camera for the classroom.

A Prescott Valley teacher would like to buy two wi-fi tablets to help students access resources on the Internet at a school with few textbooks.

Every 10 votes unlocks two bonus votes awarded via email. In addition, customers can visit their local Sonic drive-ins and receive two extra votes via special bag stickers with any purchase.

If 4 million votes are cast by Oct. 29, Sonic will donate an additional $100,000 to fund more classroom projects, and all voters will receive a coupon for a free medium Cherry Limeade.

The number of Sonic teacher projects - ranging in subjects from literature to science to art supplies - was nearly 6,000 as of September 24.

According to recent study by the National School Supply and Equipment Association, public school teachers spent an estimated $3.5 billion on educational products during the 2009-10 school year. Teachers' personal money is the most common source of funding for classroom educational products, according to the report.
