Students at one Capitol City school are asking for your help to win a technology make-over.

Irving Middle School is up for a $25,000 grant.

It all started when an 8th grade class put together a video encouraging their classmates to participate in community service.

The whole school got involved, volunteering in a variety of ways to help the community.

Teacher Troy Hassebroek entered the video for the contest.

He says it has taught the kids the value of helping others.

Irving is one of thirty finalists for the grant, provided by the Windstream SchoolsWin program.

Other area finalists include Crete Middle School, Fairbury High School, and Auburn High School.

Six of the schools will win the grant money.

Voting ends Friday at 5:00 PM.
