Vote for Elysian kids again!

4/6/2010 Update:

The kids over at Elysian Charter School won the Farm to School video contest last year – and your vote can help them win again!

Can Elysian kids repeat?

“Exciting News! Elysian Charter School’s 5th grade class has been chosen as a finalist in a national YouTube video competition sponsored by the Farm To School Network for the second year in a row. We are the defending champs, but this year we have some stiff competition. Please vote for us and forward this email to all your friends, family, colleagues, and acquaintances. The winner of the award wins a cash prize that goes towards promoting healthy food in our school, as well as an all expenses paid trip to the Farm to School Conference national conference.

“I Fell in Love With Broccoli”

You can vote for the video at…

Click on “I Fell in Love With Broccoli” and then click “Vote”

You can Watch the Video at either of the following links…

If you liked our smash hit “Who Put That Burger On Your Plate,” you’ll be sure to fall in love Broccoli!

Vote now! Voting ends Friday April 9th.

To make sure that nobody votes twice, the competition only accepts one vote per ip address. If you have more than one person in your house who wants to vote, you might try having them vote from separate computers (or even from a computer at work or school.)

Since we are a small school we will have to work extra hard to get as many votes as the other videos. We believe that what we lack in size, we make up in spirit, so please forward this to everyone you can think of!!! We’ll let you know the results as soon as we know!

See last years winning video after the jump!
