Bob’s Discount Furniture, a New England-based retailer, announced the winning schools of its “Celebrate the Arts Contest,” in which a full year’s worth of cultural arts programming will be planned and provided in each school by the retailer. The five winning schools are: Pleasant Valley Elementary School (Conn.), Collicot Schools (Mass.), Searsport Elementary School (Maine), St. Mary Academy (N.H.), and Memorial School (N.J.). The final entries were chosen randomly by a computer based upon the completed questionnaire responses. Representatives from the winning schools and from Bob’s Discount Furniture will choose the appropriate cultural arts programming, along with the dates and times in the coming weeks. The Bob’s Discount Furniture Charitable foundation supports nonprofits such as the American Cancer Society, the March of Dimes, and the American Red Cross.
