The students at Jennie Emery Elementary School in Coaldale need your help, as they compete in the semi-final voting round for the Aviva Community Fund competition. Your daily vote of support could help them become one of 40 finalists in the running for $50,000 to $100,000 toward a new playground! Those finalists will be judged by a panel to determine which projects received the major grants. Making the final round would guarantee the project at least $5,000 toward their project.

Semi-final round voting starts Monday, Dec. 1 and continues through Dec. 10. Once you’ve registered at Aviva or connected through your Facebook account, voting takes just a few seconds every day. Visit to learn more about this project and to vote.

The school community is raising money for a new playground to replace one that was removed due to safety and water issues.
