KID'S TAG ART PAYS OFF


KID'S TAG ART PAYS OFF


Money Raised For School Arts!

BARTOW, Florida/PR Free/April 10, 2008

Tax Collector Joe Tedder and local business partners with Polk County Kids Tag Art presented a check to the Polk County School Board on Tuesday, April 8, 2008 at the School Board's monthly meeting.

Mr. Tedder gave each school board member a certificate listing the participating schools within each member's district and the proceeds for that district. Each board member also received a winning kids tag designed by fifth-grade artists from each district area school.

Polk County Kids Tag Art has been in existence now for two years. In that time, over 56 public and charter schools have come on board as well as a number of private schools throughout Polk County.

Proceeds for the 2007-08 school year totalled $15,223.29, up from last year's total $15,036.97. 1207 tags were produced and sold. The total revenue for the two years is $30,260.26, all of which goes back into classroom art supplies for each participating teacher. Additionally, $10,000 has been donated by Central Florida Eurocars, to support county museums who provide visibility, serve as judges to the program, and help promote the project.
