'City Year' Named National Finalist for Lincoln Legacy Award

Whichever finalist receives the most online votes before Dec. 4 will win $50,000.
LITTLE ROCK, AR  -- A local nonprofit has been chosen as a finalist for the Lincoln Legacy Award.

City Year Little Rock was the only Arkansas-based organization selected as one of ten national finalists for the award, which honors organizations that exemplify President Lincoln's values of equality, opportunity and freedom in education, and rewards the winner with a $50,000 contribution.

To receive the Lincoln Legacy Award and the $50,000 contribution, City Year Little Rock is vying for votes in an online competition against the other finalists.

Whichever finalist receives the most online votes before Dec. 4 will become the winner.

To vote, individuals must visit http://www.lincolnslegacyaward.com/, and register through the website by using an email address and creating a password, or by using a Facebook account.

If declared the winner, City Year says they would use the $50,000 contribution to expand its Whole School Whole Child service model to Cloverdale Middle School, which feeds directly into McClellan Magnet High School, where they began serving this year.
