We’re asking for your assistance as we compete for the Stanley Security Grant. Stanley Security is offering a $150,000 First Place Prize and a $50,000 Second Place prize for the winner of this competition. Our intent if we win this prize is to create a pathway covered by CCTV from the TLC to Center Pointe and from East Commons to the UCC. This is the most heavily traveled section of the campus, especially at night.

To win the grant we must receive the most votes. Votes can be cast on-line, easy instructions are provided. You can also vote by text and on Twitter during the competition which runs from January 19 til February 13. Simply text westga to 334455 or tweet using the two hashtags #westga AND #STANLEYSecurity. We’ll keep the campus updated on how we are doing through the Discuss List. Please help us win this award by voting every day.
