Alli, a third grader from Newport Elementary is the winners of our Stoke a Student contest! She won a new snowboard through Arbor Real Estate's “Stoke a Student” contest. The campaign in partnership with Surfside Sports in Costa Mesa began five years ago and is aimed to inspire students to value education and to succeed in school.
This is the first time we've awarded a snowboard -- usually, it's a surfboard -- but with the kind of snowfall we have this year we thought a snowboard was a good choice. Travis White, an agent at Arbor was thrilled to be the one to give the snowboard to Ali. "I'm really proud to be part of a brokerage that gives back to the community in this way," says Travis about the contest. "It makes me feel like I'm part of something bigger."
The Stoke a Student contest awards a surfboard (usually) to one elementary, junior high school, or high school student in the Newport-Mesa area every other month during the school year. Students can win by filling out the entry form at Surfside Sports (no purchase necessary). Arbor Real Estate chooses a winner by random drawing. After showing proof that they carry a B grade average (or better) in school over the past semester the winner will walk away with a new board!
