— North Main Elementary School is asking for the Monroe-Woodbury community's help to fund a new outdoor fitness playground.

The elementary school is among 50 finalists in a nationwide contest sponsored by Dannon Danimals, Project Fit America and ShopRite.

Winners will be selected based on the number of online votes they receive during the month of February (27 days in total).

Four schools that secure the most votes from Feb. 2 through 28 will be rewarded a $25,000 each for a new fitness area.

North Main Principal Joseph Coto and physical education teachers Joe Pesce and Sara Fisher have worked hard to complete the necessary steps to get North Main named one of 50 finalists.

The rest is up to M-W families and the school community.

Here’s what you need to know:

• Visit www.danimals.com/schoolgrantswithpurpose each day. Set a daily reminder on your phones.

• Voting opens on Saturday, Feb. 2, and will continue through Thursday, Feb. 28.

• Select North Main Elementary

• Submit your vote; one vote limit per day, per email address

Voting is open to anyone age 13 or older who resides in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland and Pennsylvania.

"With a community as large and as engaged as Monroe-Woodbury, I am confident North Main will be a winner," said Superintendent of Schools Elsie Rodriguez. "We simply ask that our families, community members, local organizations and businesses vote every day and help spread the word. One vote, each day for 27 days, on each of your email accounts."

Rodriguez encourages everyone to share voting information on social media channels and with people they come into contact with each day.

"This is truly a community effort that would result in an area that would serve as a teaching station, fitness area and playground to be enjoyed by our students and community," she added. "There are many ways to inspire success in our children. This is just another example of our community coming together and doing something that enhances the school experience for our children.”
