Lee High School students finalist in Harvard contest, need your help to win

A Lee High School class has been selected as 1 of 10 finalist in a Harvard University contest and they need your help to win.

All you have to do, is click here, and "like" their Facebook page.

The contest called "The KIND Schools Challenge," requires participants to make a campaign that they believe will unite their school.

Eleventh grade students, Christopher Burgess and Billy Luper are spearheading the campaign. They are calling it "Your Story is Mine." The teen created a bulletin board that, every month, highlights different challenges students face.

For the month of March, the campaign is focusing on the death of a sibling.

Most of the students in the leadership class are from the Northside of Jacksonville.
       
It's their drive to make their community a better place, that has earned them a spot as finalist.
       
If Lee High School wins the contest, they will get $1500 and major recognition. It's a great way to bring positive attention to all the great things happening on the First Coast.
