Nine Holy Spirit schools cash in with winning videos

Nine different Holy Spirit Catholic School Division institutions from around southern Alberta recently became the proud recipients of $10,000 in cash.

The money is thanks to Kidoodle.TV and their Million Dollar School Giveaway contest.

Each winning school was asked to submit a video of why they needed the funding which in turn helped them win.

Colleen Maier, a teacher with the Children of St. Martha Elementary School in Lethbridge told us what they will use their funds for.

“We have a courtyard is what we call it, and it’s in the middle of our school yeah, in the middle of our school building, I guess. But it’s outside, and we’re looking at some new furniture. The asphalt needs some some finishing. Yeah. So there’s a few things we want to do with it. So excited to win the $10,000. The top five schools ended up with $20,000.We weren’t quite there, but $10,000 will go a long ways.”
