Belk Bowl helps CMS schools with technology

Three Charlotte-Mecklenburg schools won the Rocking the Belk Bowl contest and each received $25,000 for technology. Reedy Creek Elementary, Quail Hollow Middle and Hopewell High received their awards Wednesday, Dec. 5 during school assemblies.

To participate in the contest, students had to create educational and Belk-bowl themed designs on school rocks or bulletin boards. The contest ran from October to December.

An additional 20 schools which participated in the contest will receive a $1,000 technology grant.

The schools will use the $25,000 technology grant in various ways. Hopewell will purchase supplies for its digital art and fine arts classes. Reedy Creek will buy LCD projectors and iPads. Quail Hollow has not finalized its plans for the grant.

The winning schools also will also receive tickets to the 2012 Belk Bowl which will be held on Dec. 27. Their work will be featured on the Belk Bowl FanZone page, Belk’s Facebook page, The View Belk’s internal publication and during the Belk Bowl FanFest and game.
