East Islip High School has won the first round in the Ford Drive One 4 UR School Video Competition and will compete in the second stage of the contest this week.

East Islip’s video is going head to head on Facebook against videos from other school districts across the country, and if EI's entry wins, the school would be awarded as much as $10,000 to help support the Career Academy programs at the high school. 
The second round of the Drive One 4 UR School Video Competition begins at 9 a.m. on Tuesday, May 8, 2012, and runs until 9. a.m. on Wednesday, May 9. 

"Thanks to all of you in the community for taking the time to go on Facebook and vote for our video," said Guidance Director Israel Malinowitzer. "Please make every effort to view our video and vote as many times as you can before Wednesday morning, as the school with the most views will move to the third round."
