5th Annual My Ideal School Contest Awards Ceremony - Wednesday, June 22, 2011 at 1:00 p.m.

June 20, 2011

The Massachusetts School Building Authority (“MSBA”) and State Treasurer Steven Grossman, Chairman of the MSBA, recently hosted the 5th Annual “My Ideal School” Contest. This contest aims to promote discussion among first grade students and their teachers around how thoughtful construction and design of school buildings supports student learning.

This year we received over 4,000 drawings from first grade students across the Commonwealth.  Of the 4,000 drawings, 13 winners were selected, one of which will be chosen as the grand prize winner and be featured on the cover of the MSBA’s Annual Report.  Each winner will receive a $100 savings bond from our generous co-sponsors at Sovereign Bank and JP Morgan Chase & Co. The grand prize winner will be announced by Treasurer Grossman at a special State House ceremony on Wednesday, June 22nd at 1:00 pm. This ceremony will take place in the Great Hall on the second floor of the State House.
