Sandy Springs school wins national competition

Greenfield Hebrew Academy has won a national competition sponsored by Microsoft Bing but won’t spend the entire $100,000 grand prize.

The school recently won a competition called Our School Needs by posting a video online of students rapping about their leaky roof.

But the new roof won’t eat up all of the prize money, which is prompting students to share. Money leftover after the project is being donated to buy musical instruments for the James Singleton Charter School in New Orleans. That school, the first to open after Hurricane Katrina, was a finalist in the contest for its bid to outfit a marching band.
