Four schools from around southern Nevada have a lot more money this week thanks to efforts by Nevada State Bank.
The bank gave away $30,000 to the schools through its You Vote, Schools Win campaign. The school with the most votes received the biggest check. Repeating last year's win, Clark High School won the top prize of $12,000 after securing 7,296 votes. The students got the good news and the money Tuesday.
The school with the second largest number of votes was East Career and Technical Academy. It received more than 6,800 votes to earn $8,000.
Canarelli Middle School was third with more than 6,100 votes and Wolff Elementary School was fourth with 3,500 votes. Each of those schools will receive $5,000. The last check was given out Thursday afternoon.
“School spirit is definitely strong and these schools did an impressive job of getting people to show their support and vote,” said Dallas Haun, president and CEO of Nevada State Bank.
