BLUEFIELD (PRESS RELEASE) - After winning one of The Home Depot "Retool Your School" campus enhancement grants for 2010, Bluefield State College is once again asking for your vote.  BSC has submitted three grants for consideration in The Home Depot "Retool Your School" 2013 competition, and votes are being received in support of the grant application through April 15, 2013.

More than 90 Historically Black Colleges and Universities submitted proposals in last year's competition and more are expected to compete in this year's event.  Selection of the winning grants will be based in part on the merit of each grant, and in part on the votes cast for each participating institution of higher education.

One vote per day per computer is permitted.  Voters can cast online votes by visiting the Bluefield State College website at http://bluefieldstate.edu

BSC's Major Project ($50,000) grant application involves the development of a series of instructional "How-to" videos related to utilizing material from The Home Depot for gardening, ecology, and outdoor projects.  These videos will be developed while projects like tree and flower planting, environmentally friendly gardening, and patio construction are taking place on campus.  The Campus Pride Project ($25,000) grant application focuses upon the installation of campus lighting, including solar and battery powered lights in and around campus buildings, to line sidewalks, etc., and the Minor Project ($10,000) grant application concentrates upon landscaping projects at selected locations throughout the campus.

"We are asking our students, employees, alumni, and friends throughout the region to consider taking a moment each day to cast their vote in support of these grants," noted Shelia Johnson, BSC's Vice President for Financial & Administrative Affairs.  "Your daily vote for Bluefield State College could make the difference!"
