Give with Target: Vote for Vicksburg High School.

This year, Target will give money to schools all over the country for one simple act: a vote. Our school needs just 25 votes to earn a $25 donation from Target. But that's only the beginning. For each additional vote, our school will get $1 more. So please remember that, although the gesture is small, the rewards are potentially huge. Go to to vote for Vicksburg High School. Voting has been extended and now closes on September 30 or until Target has given away all $5 million.
