Notch another win for East Islip High School in the national Ford Drive One 4 UR School Video Competition, as the school's video came in first in a second-round May 9 head-to-head contest against another school. East Islip received 5,173 views compared to 2,264 for the competing school. EI stands to win as much as $10,000 to help support the Career Academy programs at the high school. 

East Islip Guidance Director Israel Malinowitzer will announce details on the third round soon.

In the meantime, be sure to attend this Saturday's Drive One 4 UR School fundraiser. The May 12 event will be held at the high school’s parking lot and runs from 9 a.m. through 1:30 p.m. For every person (only one person per household) that test-drives one of the brand-new Ford vehicles on display, Ford Motor Company will donate $20 to East Islip’s Career Academies. There is no charge to test-drive a Ford car, but participants must be 18 years or older and possess a valid driver’s license. The Career Academies will host a barbecue luncheon during the event, and the high school's National Honor Society will host a car wash in the parking lot.
