A Youngsville school is among 30 finalists in a national competition for $10,000.

Long Mill Elementary School entered a video and essay about why the school could use some additional financial support in the Lots2Give program, sponsored by Big Lots. One $10,000 grand prize, three first prizes of $5,000 each, and 22 second prizes of $2,500 each, will be awarded.

Voting began June 11 on www.lots2give.com and runs through 11:59 p.m. on July 12.

Internet votes will determine which school takes home the cash.

    As the bumpersticker says,
    "It will be great day when schools get all the money they need and the military has to hold a bake sale to buy a bomber."
