Vote Learning Resource Center as Polk’s Best Learning Center

We are thrilled to announce that thanks to you and your daily votes last month, the Learning Resource Center has made it to the final round of The Ledger’s 2017 Best of Best Polk contest. Will you help us earn the title of Polk County’s Best Learning & Tutoring Center?
 

 
To do so, please vote for LRC daily through Sunday, July 30 under the Kids & Education: Learning Center/Tutor category at TheLedger.com/Contests. The second round of voting began Sunday, July 16, which means we are already days into this final round.
 
Another way to help is by spreading the word to friends, family and co-workers by email, social media, word of mouth, phone and/or any other ways you can think of. We appreciate any help you can lend.
 
This voting phase will be used to select the community’s top 3 favorite businesses in 150 categories in Polk County. The winner and finalists in each category will be announced in a special “Best of the Best” section that The Ledger will publish on Friday, September 22.
 
That’s not all! When you vote in 25 or more categories, you’ll be entered to win a $500 gift card from The Ledger Media Group.
 
When you vote for LRC, you’re helping us to potentially reach more students and you could win $500. It’s a win-win!
 
Thanks again for your support and helping us get to this stage of the competition. Thanks in advance for your assistance in this final phase!

PIGFEST COMMUNITY

What attendees may not realize is that PigFest takes hundreds of volunteers and thousands of volunteer hours to help carry out the event, and local nonprofits, such as the Learning Resource Center, partner to provide the needed amount of volunteers. PigFest then gives every dollar raised back to the community!
 
By granting the Learning Resource Center opportunities and funds based on service hours, PigFest has helped provide academic assistance and highly-qualified tutors to help students succeed and has also enabled LRC to meet the needs of students, parents and the community by aiding in the expenses of daily operation. The effect this annual barbeque festival has had on LRC reaches every aspect of the organization. Those who received any service from LRC in 2016 were impacted by its support.
 

VOLUNTEER AT PIGFEST

With that being said, LRC is seeking 2017 individuals, pairs and groups to volunteer. Volunteers are needed for shifts taking place in the judging, team breakfast and golf cart shuttling areas. Shifts are available Thursday, January 26-Saturday, January 28. To view the available shifts and to register, please click VOLUNTEER AT PIGFEST.
 
 
We look forward to seeing you there! Whether you’re a competitor, attendee or volunteer, it’s sure be a fun weekend.
