St Margaret School has a week left to win $50,000.
St. Margaret School, 141 N. Hickory Avenue, is striving to earn the most votes in the Clorox Power A Bright Future contest.
The private school is the only one in Harford County to make it past the national nomination period to become a finalist, Kim Picarello Sanschagrin, a St. Margaret parent, wrote in a message to Patch.
Harford County Executive David Craig has offered his support of the school's efforts. The contest runs through Dec. 19.
The school with the most votes will get the $50,000 grand prize, while the second place school will get $25,000. If St. Margaret wins, the money will be used to buy new technology for classrooms from pre-K to 8th grade, Sanschagrin wrote.
Adults and children over age 13 can support the school by casting a vote each day by texting keyword "2329pbf" to the number 95248 or by visiting the contest site.
