Dolan Auto Group’s Class Project In Back

The Dolan Auto Group’s annual Class Project is back. CEO Ryan Dolan says once again, they are challenging classrooms in our region to band together to plan and execute a community outreach project. Eleven classrooms across Northern Nevada will be selected as finalists based on the creativity, overall involvement and positive impact of their projects. Ten will receive $2,500 each and the classroom that receives the most votes on Facebook from March 17th through the 19th will receive $5,000. Classrooms must provide a one-page summary of their community outreach project along with a short video, explanation of measurable results and how the project was executed, how many students participated and how the funds will be used. Submissions must be sent to Ashton@DolanAutoGroup.com by 5 p.m. Wednesday, March 14th.
