Simpson University announces iPad Winners and encourages community to keep voting
For Immediate Release
The winners include Tyler Belong of San Diego; Nick Willford, a sophomore in the Outdoor Leadership program at Simpson; Hossana Terrado, a sophomore in the nursing major at Simpson; and Redding resident Heather Sherman.
During the month of October, Simpson University and the Redding Community Baseball Field Committee competed for a grant of $250,000 from the Pepsi Refresh Challenge to fund the Redding Community Baseball Field.
While the project did not place in the top two rankings for October, it was ranked high enough to qualify for competition during November. The community is encouraged to continue voting throughout November by visiting www.facebook.com/letsplayball or texting 73774 with the message 103305.
Simpson University will offer a $500 cash prize to a high school voter at the end of November to go toward his or her class fund at their junior high or high school. Students, teachers, staff, family and friends can vote once a day for the remainder of the month for their desired high school or junior high class. To register for the cash prize, text the word "simpson" to the number 84700.
If awarded the grant, the Redding Community Baseball Field, which will be constructed on the Simpson University campus, will provide a safe, alcohol-, tobacco- and drug-free venue for youth and collegiate baseball and local events.
