Clarke Middle School is one of more than 200 schools throughout the Midwest that are receiving the innovative technology tools this year through Hy-Vee’s SMART Points promotion, which ran from Sept. 1 through Nov. 30.

During the promotional period, shoppers who purchased Procter and Gamble products at Hy-Vee earned points that could be designated to the schools of their choice.

Clarke Middle School achieved the highest average points score in its region to earn the $1,500 SMART Board, which is an interactive whiteboard.

In addition, LeeAnn Helgevold, the student with the most points designated on her behalf, received an iPad2 16GB with Wi-Fi tablet during the May 20 presentation.
