Help JSU Win Grant, Vote Online Today

Jackson State University is aiming to receive a campus-improvement grant up to $50,000 sponsored by Home Depot’s annual Retool Your School program.

To vote click on link below.

The Retool Your School program was established in 2010 by The Home Depot to give back to the nation’s Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). The program provides support through grants for on-campus enhancement projects.

Securing the grant for Jackson State University heavily depends on supporters to vote on social media by using the hashtag #Jackson_RYS18 on their Twitter and Instagram pages. There is no limitation on how many times the hashtag can be used in one day. However, posts made via social media must be public to be counted as a vote in the competition.

Online voting begins Feb. 26 and ends April 15.

The Home Depot will award a total of $360,000 in grants this year, and nine schools will have the opportunity to make necessary upgrades to their campuses.

Each HBCU is divided into three clusters based on student enrollment. Three winners will be chosen from each cluster:

$50,000 grand prize grant
$40,000 2nd place grant
$30,000 3rd place grant

The Home Depot Retool Your School improvement awards are decided by consumer voting via social media and project proposal scores, which are determined by a panel of judges.

All grant awards will be announced on May 1.
