Our families in Lake Forest District 67 make up the largest segment of contributions received. In 2018, the Spirit created the Crosstown Contest to raise awareness of the Spirit’s mission, the grants awarded at each school, which, in turn, would lead to an increase of family participation.
The contest sets aside a total of $7,500, which includes a base contest prize of $1,000 per campus and a “holiday” bonus of $500 if the goal is reached by December 31. The five (5) campus locations are Cherokee, Everett, Sheridan, DPM-East and DPM-West.
As an added component of this contest, and to celebrate family participation, the school with the highest participation by Grant Day will receive the engraved traveling trophy & a popsicle party for the students!
For School Year 2022-23, the Crosstown Competition WINNER is:
After receiving a donation from 85.7% of its families, CHEROKEE pulled ahead and was declared the winner of the 2022-2023 Crosstown Competition!
It was an extremely close race with Everett (83.1%) and Sheridan (83.0%) so close behind. We are immensely grateful for every donor! Your donations show that you recognize the work we do to bring enhancements to every district 67 school and enrich every one of our students’ education! Thank you!
