A Tennessee school system has earned $7,000 for helping to promote a new technology designed to block offensive language from television programming.

In an agreement with Global Cable Inc. of Trenton, Ga., the Hamilton County Schools received 2,800 of the company's ProtecTV devices to connect to classroom televisions. In return, school officials encouraged thousands of students to take fliers home to their parents advertising the product.

The school system also received $33 for each ProtectTV box sold during a two-month sales promotion that started in January.
