Prairie State College (PSC) has a new fire truck and is seeking the help of elementary school students in District 515 to give it a name. The winner will receive a gift card, a PSC swag bag and a ride to their school in the new fire truck.
Homewood and Flossmoor are part of District 515.
"This is a great way to get our young community members involved in activities at the college,” said Megan Hughes, interim dean of Allied Health and Emergency Services. "Children have such great imaginations, and I can't wait to see what names are submitted for the new truck."
The initiative is open to students from kindergarten through sixth grade. Names must be submitted by midnight on Monday, May 3. Submissions should be no more than two words and must be original. Hughes encourages students to have fun with the contest.
"We're looking forward to receiving some original names and hope the students have a good time in brainstorming their submissions," said Hughes.
