Hollis in running for $3,000 grant to be decided by community votes

Merrimack County Savings Bank has launched a wellness-themed Facebook contest.

Community members can vote for local schools to win a $3,000 health and wellness grant and enter to win one of five Fitbit Blaze Smart Fitness Watches for themselves.

Over the summer, the bank reached out to school administrators and asked how their school district could benefit from an additional $3,000 in wellness resources. Ten school districts responded – Hollis, Dunbarton, Henniker, Hill, Hooksett, Hopkinton, Kearsarge, Merrimack Valley, Pittsfield and Weare -and their entries will be posted to the Merrimack’s Facebook page through Friday, Nov. 18.

Community members are encouraged to review the submissions and vote for the school they feel is most deserving of the grant.

To place a vote for your favorite school district, visit www.facebook.com/themerrimack and click on the contest application. Once on the voting page, review the school district submissions, select the school district you want to vote for and click submit.

Eligible voters who place a vote prior to Nov. 18 and provide their name and contact information will also be entered to win a Fitbit.
