When The Ohio State Buckeyes play the Alabama Crimson Tide in the College Football Playoff National Championship game Jan. 11 in Miami, there will not just be one particular winner in South Florida: In partnership with the College Football Playoff Foundation (CFP Foundation), School Specialty LLC is donating $125,000 in makeover services to two region K-12 schools.

Stranahan High School in Fort Lauderdale will obtain $one hundred,000 in furnishings and gear to produce a media center that consists of a mindfulness region, recharge sharing nook, screen-printing studio, VR Hub and an eSports Zone. Belle Glade Elementary School close to West Palm Beach is having $25,000 in furnishings to redesign its media center – like a designated Early Childhood space.

The donations are aspect of the Extra Yard Makeover Project, an annual tradition of providing in which School Specialty and the CFP Foundation group up to produce more dynamic studying environments inside schools exactly where the National Championship game is becoming played. The foundation chooses the schools that will advantage from the makeovers, and School Specialty operates with them to style contemporary environments that help more active and engaging studying.

This year’s donations also involve cutting-edge technologies to enable the schools provide in-individual instruction safely through the pandemic. Stranahan is having an intelligent robot from UBTECH that utilizes UV-C rays to disinfect studying spaces, guarding students and employees from COVID-19 and other pathogens. Belle Glade is having a TRIO Plus transportable air filter from Field Controls to achieve the very same process in its new media center.

“We’re proud of our partnership with the CFP Foundation and thrilled to make a difference in local communities,” says Stacey Rubin, Senior Vice President of Marketing for School Specialty. “This aligns with our mission as a company to inspire students and transform education with the help of modern learning environments.”
