'Greenest' school contest nears end

There's still time to vote — a few times — for Turlock's Walnut Elementary Education Center in the "America's Greenest School" contest sponsored by IC Bus.

Denise Loomis' sixth-grade class is one of 10 finalists in the competition.

The winner, determined by the number of votes generated online, will get a $150,000 hybrid bus from the Illinois-based company, $20,000 for green improvements at the school, $3,000 for the class and $500 for the teacher.

Voting runs through Friday, and people can vote once per day.
