Mt. Hope, KansasCHARLOTTE, N.C. – March 10, 2015 – In celebration of Read Across America week, SignUpGenius, the leading online sign up service, and Penguin Random House’s Brightly, team up to give away a $5000 school library makeover.

St. Joseph Catholic School in Mt. Hope, Kansas has been chosen randomly from over 16,000 entries to receive the contest prize of $5000. School parent Debra Masterson, who nominated the school for this impressive reward, will additionally receive $250.

“The gratitude of our faculty and staff is beyond words,” says Eva Harmon, Principal at St. Joseph. “The local parishioners who fund our small school will be excited to know that there are generous people willing to join them in their efforts to provide quality education for our youth.”

Furthering a shared commitment to children and education, SignUpGenius and Brightly recognize the need to encourage reading and increase educational opportunities for children. Providing the necessary resources is the first step.

“Schools are such an important part of our user base,” affirms Angel Rutledge, SignUpGenius COO, CMO. “We are delighted to partner with Brightly to support education and inspire a love of reading in children with this library.”

Just wanted to let you know what a HUGE time-saver SignUpGenius has been to me in planning numerous classroom parties and school events as well as some personal social gatherings. It's really a great tool, and I so appreciate you making it available for others to use. As in your comments, I'm much to busy to be worried about the silly details of coordinating things like snacks and sign-ups, so using this is freeing me up for more important (&fun!) activities. Thank You!!!!
