Today is the last day to vote for Virginia Tech to win the “Tree Campus USA Arbor Day Events Contest.” Ten colleges are in the running to win $1,000 for trees to plant around campus. The contest is sponsored by The National Arbor Day Foundation.
Last year Tech won the competition and used the funds to purchase trees that were planted on campus during Earth Week 2011.
As of Tuesday Tech was in the lead, just a few hundred votes ahead of the University of Rochester.
