“The Gorrell Elementary PTO has an annual budget of $12,000 that is raised through two major fundraisers—a book sale and a spring candy bar sale. This year, we tried something different for our prizes for the spring sale. We had a ‘candy scramble’ for all the students who sold at least one box of candy. But for the top sellers, we wrapped them in masking tape and gave them a chance to roll around in a bunch of scattered dollar bills. The money that stuck to them was theirs to keep. Doing this let us reward all the students who helped sell, and it gave the children a fun activity.”
