The deadline for the next drawing is September 20, 2016 by 5:00 p.m. NOTE: Because each school district may have a different time for issuing report cards, if a student’s entry misses one deadline, the entry will automatically be included in the next drawing.

To enter, students must include:

  • A copy of the report card with any “A”s highlighted
  • Parents’ or guardians’ names (if applicable)
  • Home address
  • Email address that is checked regularly
  • School attending
  • Telephone Number

Students in any grade in Durham, Franklin, Granville, Johnston, Nash, Vance and Wake counties may apply.

Funding for the Give us an A program is made possible by Wake Electric members through the Operation RoundUp Program. Members who sign up for Operation RoundUp elect to have their monthly electric bill rounded up to the next whole dollar. These pennies add up to major dollars for community programs.  For more details on “Give us an A,” go to https://wemc.com/give-us-an-a/.
