Manhattan Catholic Schools has been picked as one of two random winners in a national contest sponsored by Cartridge World, and will get a $15,000 prize to be used to further technology at the school.
Sara Meyer, who owns the local Cartridge World franchise, reported the school’s selection Monday.
Meyer said a school in New Jersey won the contest, which involved getting the most votes on a website, www.savevote win.com. Two additional schools were chosen at random among approximately 700 entered in the contest, Meyer said. A school in Georgia was the other randomly selected winner, she said. Several other area schools were part of the contest.
Manhattan Catholic officials couldn’t be reached; the school was out of session Monday.
