School District #175
EMGE Intermediate/JH falls short in a close race with competing districts for the Main Stage Curtain Contest sponsored by Rosebrand Inc.
We have attached the email we received from Rosebrand on 11/21/2014.
Though we did not win, we are extremely thankful for everyone who helped make
our odds at winning EVEN A POSSIBILITY. Look at what we did accomplish:
1. We tallied 1143 votes in 7 days.
2. We had 173 more votes than the closest competitor.
3. The 3 districts that were closest to us in total “likes” were composed of
approximately 2700+, 1700+, and 380+ students.
4. Our enrollment at Emge is 319 students.
5. We are winners for accomplishing what we did!
Thank you for everything.
Proud 7/8 Principal at EMGE JH
To our wonderful video contest entrants,
Keep gathering “likes” on your video until Friday, 11/14 at 4pm (EASTERN), when all “likes” will be tallied. By end of next week, 11/21, our judges will review all information and declare our winner. As indicated in the contest rules, the winner will be selected on the basis of likes, creativity / entertainment value of the video, and organizational need. The judges decision will be final. We thank you for your participation and congratulate all of you on your terrific efforts.
Emge JH/Intermediate School has entered for a chance to win up to $10,000 to replace the main curtains in the gymnasium.
This opportunity presented itself to us by Ms. Sarah James, our PTO president who is a parent in our community. She forwarded us an email (11/4) that she received from her mother discussing how a school/organization could win a new stage curtain if we were willing to enter a video competition. Our art teacher, Ms. Duenne Schlarmann jumped at the opportunity to create our video. Several of her 3rd period class volunteered to participate in our videos/pictures. Ms. Schlarmann created/edited our video overnight and it was submitted it on 11/6.
