JANESVILLE, Wis. - A Janesville elementary school is vying for a $150,000 prize in a national contest.
The school is currently in fourth place in a competition for votes that can be submitted at US Cellular stores.
District officials said if the school wins the money would be used to buy Smartboards, iPads and mobile computer labs.
Monroe Elementary School Principal Lori Burns said if the school wins she will sleep on the roof of the school. The teacher from the grade level that can round up the most votes will get a pie in the face.
The second through 17th-place schools will each receive $50,000.
