>MCU Announces Winners of 2014 Build A Better School Contest

The results are in! School by the Sea (P.S. 048) was named the $10,000 grand prize winner of the 2014 Build A Better School Contest at a special awards ceremony held at the United Federation of Teachers headquarters located at 52 Broadway, New York, NY on Monday, June 23rd, 2014.

The School by the Sea, which is located in Far Rockaway Queens and serves grades pre k - 8, intends to use the prize money to help rebuild and refurbish classrooms that were damaged by Super Storm Sandy.

In addition to the $10,000 grand prize, four additional schools, Fredrick Douglas Academy III, Brooklyn Transition Center, The Richard H. Hungerford School and Chelsea CTE, each received $5,000 awards towards improving each of their schools.

The event was not without some special surprises, including an announcement from UFT that they would be matching all of the prize dollars, doubling the winnings for each school.

“The Build a Better School Contest has been a hugely successful - and rewarding - program in which MCU and our contest partners can help propel youth forward by helping them to think about their communities and their education,” said MCU Vice President of Business Development/ Member Relations Corey Fernandes. “We are extremely proud of the assistance we are able to offer schools within our New York City areas and we look forward to continuing this contest in the future.”

The Build a Better School contest, created by MCU in conjunction with the NYC Department of Education, the United Federation of Teachers, the Council of School Supervisors and Administrators, CUNY, WPIX-TV 11 and the Daily News, encouraged students throughout the five boroughs to create and submit short videos describing the needs at their schools for the chance to win awards to complete those projects. Prize recipients were selected out of a pool of 61 submissions, and judged based on their school’s need, the spirit of collaboration, creativity of the project they would like to take on and how this project will help strengthen the school community.
