    PROJECT REWRITE


    A community depends on the success of our education delivery system to help all of our citizens become productive members of our economy. Unfortunately, we have 55,000 adults that have not yet achieved their High School Diploma. You can help us help these adults get back on the pathway toward achieving the basic education that they need to live a better life. CLEDA has entered a competition for a grant from the USA Today Network (Gannett Co., Inc.) in the category of Education. The competitors present their ideas in the form of a video and the general public can vote, on-line, up to 30 times (one vote per person per day) from April 12 through May 12. Please help us bring this grant money to Central Louisiana by voting for our video each day for 30 days. It will take less than a minute.
