AUBURN, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Fairview Elementary School in Auburn is one of 20 winners of $25,000 given out by U.S. Cellular.
U.S. Cellular ran the three week contest through November 25th. It required members of each community to go to U.S. Cellular's website and vote for their school. At the end of the three week period the top 20 vote getters would win $25,000 dollars for their school.
Fairview's principal says the money will go a long way especially in these times of tight budgets.
Fairview Elementary became the first school in New England to win in the contest's five year history.
