Going to a website isn’t the only way to vote in the Power a Bright Future contest, and — based on what we’re hearing — that’s a good thing. The contest’s winner will get a $50,000 grant from Clorox. But slowdowns on the voting website have frustrated some voters.

Quick-fingered users can text in their votes for the Northland schools in the running for the prize.

Text the following “keywords” to 95248:

    • For Lakeview Christian Academy in Duluth, text 1837pbf
    • For St. James Catholic School in Duluth, text 1504pbf
    • For St. John’s School in Duluth, text 1438pbf
    • For Washington Elementary School in Ely, text 764pbf
    • For Wrenshall School, text 1393pbf

One vote each via text and website per person is allowed through Dec. 19, so don’t get greedy.
