Time is running out for Massachusetts students to enter for a chance to win money for college in the 9th annual College Savings Art Competition. The deadline for children in grades K to 5 to submit their entries is October 31 at 5 p.m.
Sponsored by MEFA, the College Savings Art Competition is now accepting submissions of artwork depicting "What do I want to be when I graduate from college?" The contest, previously open only to students in grades 3, 4 and 5, now includes grades K, 1 and 2. Students must live in Massachusetts and may attend any public, private, charter or home-based school.
Acton residents and business owners now have until Oct. 31 to contract for a reduced-cost solar power installation. There is also now a no-money-down Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) option.
In a PPA, instead of owning a system outright, residents just pay for the solar electricity produced, at rates less than NStar. Sign up now for a free solar power site assessment or learn more about this joint program sponsored by the Town of Acton, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, and local community partners.
RJ Grey Junior high school just held its first Everyday Leader lunch for several 7thand 8th grade students.

Congratulations to the following students for being selected as part of our first group of Everyday Leaders: Valentine Bulpin, Peter Castaneda, Lily Friedman, Joanna Gaspar, Eli Goykhman, Caitlin Little, Jack Maddox, Samara Pinto, Isabella Saarinen, and Samantha Whittle.
