State Farm would like to thank all those who have supported the 26 Seconds campaign. The final BMOR project monthly activity for this school year has been launched. In addition to a chance to win a prize for the final activity, high school students have until May 10 to enter to win a grand prize.
By completing five of the eight BMOR Project activities, they are automatically entered to win the GRAND PRIZE – an end-of-the-year PARTY for their community. In addition to getting to invite 100 of their closest friends, they also get to play host, select the music, food, and all the fun activities for the celebration. They also win a TABLET computer.
Encourage students to complete all eight activities. State Farm will send all who do a limited edition T-shirt marking their accomplishment and participation.
Time is short. Please visit the BMOR Project tab on our Facebook page today at: www.facebook.com/26seconds

Did you know that every 26 seconds a young person in the United States drops out of high school? You can help turn that statistic around by participating with SkillsUSA in the 26 Seconds Campaign. By doing so, you can win prizes, scholarships, and help SkillsUSA and the student drop out crisis in the process.
Here is what to do:
Help take back the stat by taking the pledge to graduate via the BMOR Project on Facebook (facebook.com/26seconds). When you pledge, select SkillsUSA as your affiliation. Then, return to the BMOR Project regularly to participate in the new activities that launch on the 26th of each month. Not only will you be eligible to win prizes, you can also help SkillsUSA. The organization with the highest number of graduation pledges and activity participants per month wins a grant.
Right now, in addition to a chance to win monthly prizes when you participate, you’ll also receive a 26 Seconds t-shirt just for pledging. The online activities are fun, easy and show you how to channel your interests into a future after graduation. The grand prize is an end-of-the-year celebration that one lucky student will bring to their school and community. But, you must complete at least 5 of the activities to be eligible for the grand prize.
Plus, you can share videos, photos, projects (like SkillsUSA’s Student2Student program), artwork and creative writings on the Facebook page. By doing so, your creativity may also be chosen to be featured on www.26seconds.com. Shine a light on you, your school and the importance of high school graduation.
