Vote for Morris Township’s Unity Charter school in TREE-mendous contest

Unity Charter School needs your votes to win $10,000 for new trees.

 

Only God can make a tree, according to poet Joyce Kilmer.

But a bunch of third-graders from the Unity Charter School are hoping to lend a hand–with your help.

They are among a dozen schools nationwide–and the only finalist from New Jersey–competing in an online video contest. Unity’s kids need your votes to win $10,000 to replace trees at school that were knocked down by Hurricane Sandy.

It’s called the Scotties Trees Rock Video Contest.   Yes, that’s the same Scotties that turns trees into napkins and toilet paper. The company says it grows three trees for every one that meets such a fate.

Unity’s video, organized by teacher Jennifer Carcich and recorded by parent Beth Mastromarino, sets loose a cub reporter on a stand of trees. You might expect some …wooden interviews.  Not so!

If the school wins, it plans to create a leafy outdoor classroom.

The online voting runs through Feb. 14, 2014.  Vote here… and branch out!
