Need a new media room? Just answer 1 question, submit a few photos, and your media room could get a total makeover!

The Grand Rapids Griffins and Farm Bureau Insurance are teaming up to provide a media room makeover for one deserving elementary or middle school in Kent County, Ottawa County, Allegan County or the Thornapple-Kellogg district, through their fourth annual Media Room Makeover contest.

Depending on the winning school’s needs, its media room makeover could consist of a variety of new resources for its existing media room, computer lab or library, such as computer hardware, software, books, furniture, paint, carpet and light construction, with a value up to $15,000.
Following the application deadline on April 6, all entries will be reviewed by the Griffins and Farm Bureau Insurance and narrowed to a pool of three finalist schools, each of which will receive a site visit as part of the final selection.

The Griffins and Farm Bureau will choose the winning school by April 30, assist school officials in the makeover of the school’s media room this summer, then host a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the start of the new school year in August or September. The two runner-up schools will each receive $250 toward upgrading the amenities of their current media rooms.
