Community's help needed
Ridgecrest in running for $30,000 prize

LARGO – The students, teachers and parents at Ridgecrest Elementary School are asking the community’s help to win $30,000 for playground or physical education equipment in the Dannon Danimals Rally for Recess contest.

The winning school must enter the most codes online to become one of five schools to win the grand prize. Schools obtain the codes through specific Dannon products or by requesting codes by handwritten letter, each letter mailed separately.

“A team of Ridgecrest parents has been busy writing requests for codes and entering codes online. Students have been bringing in codes from Dannon packages as well as stamps to support the effort. Individual classes are competing to bring in the most stamps and codes,” explained parent Michelle Browett.

So far, it’s been working. Ridgecrest has been in first place in its division nationally, over two other schools in Florida.

The best way the community can help is by donating first-class postage stamps so the school can request more codes. Stamps can be dropped off at the school office or mailed to: Rally for Recess, Ridgecrest Elementary School, 901 119th St. N., Largo, FL 33778. 

Donations must be received at the school by Dec. 21 when the schools close for winter break, as all requests for codes must be postmarked by Dec. 31. All codes must be entered online by Jan. 31.

“We will use every single stamp received to request Dannon codes for this year’s competition,” Browett stated. “We need community support to win.”

Ridgecrest Elementary is competing in the “Bear League,” for schools between 701 and 1,000 students. The winner will be announced on or around Feb. 28. For more information about the contest, visit www.RallyForRecess.com.
