December 4, 2012 (La Mesa)--Helix Charter High School is a nominee in The Clorox Company's Power a Bright Future grant program and is in the running to win up to $50,000. If we win, the school will use this grant to fund community-based, student-run Senior Projects. All Helix students are required to complete a Senior Project to graduate.

"Currently, many students choose to do projects that benefit the surrounding communities; however, due to the costs associated with a large-scale project, many are done on a small scale. If Helix were to win this grant, the projects would not face those funding limitations and students could affect our community in a much bigger way," says Jenn Osborn, Helix community relations.

As school budgets continue to shrink nationwide, The Clorox Company's Power A Bright Future program was created to help schools fund new or ongoing programs that provide kids with the opportunity to play, create and explore.

"To help Helix win this grant, we need our neighbors' votes!" Osborn says.

Each supporter can vote once per day through Dec. 12, 2012 until 11:59pm EDT, using this link: https://powerabrightfuture.clorox.com/nominees/detail/?nid=1009 or via text from their mobile phone. Visit www.PowerABrightFuture.com for more details and official rules.
