Students who were selected wrote a short paper or drew a picture describing why they would like to win a new bike, where they would ride it and how they would take care of it.

“Our students are very excited and very thankful that Variety has made this opportunity happen for them,” Rock Island Academy Principal Lucille Davis said.
