“North Shore Bank was founded by a group of teachers in Shorewood, Wisconsin, and as we honor our 95th anniversary, we wanted to continue to support projects that support education and benefit children in our local communities,” said Susan T. Doyle, North Shore Bank’s senior vice president of retail banking. “As a community-minded bank, we have a long relationship and history with schools, and we recognize the need to back efforts that benefit students and encourage lasting life skills for success. Selecting the finalists from the many creative and worthwhile initiatives that we received was not easy, but each of these twelve projects are incredibly deserving of the funds, we can’t wait to see who the community chooses.”

Entrants had to be school, classroom, academic, arts, athletics, technology and club initiatives that have a positive impact on public or private school students from 4k to 12th grade. To enter, students or teachers had to submit a video no longer than two minutes, explaining why their project deserves $1,923 to benefit children and how the funds will be spent. Video entries were considered for their creativity, enthusiasm, and passion in petitioning for the donated funds, as well as, the need and degree of merit it possesses for supporting local students.
