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.
