$500,000 TOGETHER FOR SAFER SCHOOLS Grant Program. 
The first-place winner and recipient of a $200,000 grant is Faith

The TOGETHER FOR SAFER SCHOOLS Grant Program is a national K-12
contest established by STANLEY Security in 2013 to help K-12 schools
enhance security on campus. In its first year, the program offered
U.S. schools the opportunity to receive security products and
services through a $500,000 grant program. During the 45-day
nomination period between September 13 and October 28, nearly 1,000
schools were nominated from around the country, with at least one
school represented from every state in the continental U.S. 
Once the nominations were finalized, the voting process began and
schools rallied their students, teachers and communities to encourage
daily voting, either online at, or by
text message. Voting ended at 11:59 pm EST on December 13, and votes
were tallied to reveal the top four schools as Faith Christian
Academy, South Pointe Elementary School, Montessori School of Dayton
and Pioneer Elementary School, who came in first, second, third and
fourth places respectively. STANLEY Security will make presentations
to officials from the winning schools on Friday, January 10.
