Chillicotheans have a couple opportunities to help other residents through online voting.



Chillicotheans have a couple opportunities to help other residents through online voting.







As an update to another blog post, residents still can vote for Chillicothe in the Reader’s Digest’s “We Hear You America” campaign.







Chillicothe is falling in at No. 43 with 72,042 votes. Residents have pulled the city up in the ranks but the city must place in the top 18 to get a cash prize from the competition.







My challenge to readers was to vote 15 times per day, which amounts to less than two minutes. A?project has not been announced yet that would receive the funding. The contest ends March 1.







Another way to vote for a cause is to help out the Mossville First Lego League’s project.







Illinois Valley Central District 321 Public Relations Director Karen Moewe wrote an interesting story about the team’s project. It’s amazing that Legos and engineering could assist in saving the banana. A disease threatens to wipe out the Cavendish banana, the type of edible banana used now, after the Big Mike variety was wiped out by the disease.







The Mossville students used research on pea plants that were given an electric shock which boosted the plants’ ability to the fight the disease, to theorize if that would help banana plants.







Residents can vote for their project once per day until 5 p.m. March 1.







The Top 10 projects will be added to the 10 projects the judges select on their merit.







Whether the Mossville students win or not, they came up with a great project which could affect everyone who eats bananas.
