Stamford School Earns E-Book in Contest

STAMFORD, Conn. – The upper level students at Stamford’s Holy Spirit School will get books for their e-readers after the school accumulated more than 500 votes in Main Street Connect’s “ Better School Bonanza ” and earning it $500.

“Now we can start downloading,” Principal Pat Torchen said, explaining that the school still needs to purchase books for the e-readers. Holy Spirit was able to buy the e-readers for the older students after participating in the Catholic School Walk-a-thon on Oct. 15, the principal said.

While there are only 94 students in the North Stamford Catholic School , the parents, and staff rallied together to spread the word about the contest, said Dawn Clarke, a parent at Holy Spirit. Also, by promoting the contest on Facebook, alumni - including Torchen’s two children - voted in “Better Schools Bonanza,” Clarke said.

The Fairfield County school with the most votes in the Better Schools Bonanza contest will receive $10,000 and second most, $1,000. Every school that gets 500 votes will receive $500.

Main Street Connect , is a National News Company that produces hyper-local news websites, including the Daily Stamford. The company presented the check to the school on Wednesday.
