May 21, 2010 (09:05 AM EDT)


WARREN, Mich., May 21 /PRNewswire/ -- We love celebrating and supporting the children and families of the communities where you live which is why it's such a pleasure for us to sponsor WXYZ TV's 31st *Brightest and Best* event honoring Southeast Michigan's graduate high school students who have achieved outstanding academic excellence.

We're going to ask you to help us help keep Michigan's *Brightest and Best* here in MI by helping us congratulate ALL graduating high school seniors in MI and letting them know how proud we all are of what they have accomplished. How?

Announcing our first Gardner White Book Scholarship of $1000.00.

How can YOU help?

  1. Upload a picture of your 2010 high school graduating senior in their cap and gown to our Facebook Page: http://facebook.com/GardnerWhiteFurniture.
  2. Tag their picture with their name and/or leave a comment for them on our Facebook Page sharing how proud you are of them! Share your comment with your Facebook friends so they will be encouraged to congratulate the graduating high school seniors, too!
  3. Ask your friends to upload the pictures of their own 2010 high school graduating seniors to our Facebook Page.
  4. Come back to our blog here (http://gardner-white.typepad.com/) and let us know in our BLOG comments that you uploaded a pic of a 2010 high school graduating senior and commented on their pic and leave us your contact info.

On June 15th, 2010, we'll snip ALL the comments left on our blog here (http://gardner-white.typepad.com/) by you and your friends and put them in a box and draw one name. That lucky 2010 Michigan high school graduating senior will receive our $1000.00 college book scholarship! *

Imagine the feeling these students will get when they see the hundreds of thousands of supportive comments we are hoping they will get from families all over Michigan and the country and how much this will mean to them. We will do all we can to help get POSITIVE national exposure for our 2010 high school graduating seniors with this idea and, as a first step, are putting this blog on the national PR Newswire.

Please share this blog post with your friends and online networks far and wide. Let's bring national attention to how proud we are of our high school graduating seniors in Michigan and let them know how much we recognize their hard work and determination by filling our FB Page with wonderful comments about our graduates!

Working together as a state we can support a more positive future for ALL of Michigan's *Brightest and Best* and encourage our students to stay here and work here after college by showing them we care about making sure they have a future full of enticing possibilities and a supportive network of adults who care about their success!
