It is important to get this done ASAP if you want to get in line for the free money.
IN THE SPIRIT OF FAFSA, Mrs. Povse is offering $25 cash. To win the cash, put the words FREE APPLICATION FOR FEDERAL STUDENT AID, ALONG WITH YOUR NAME ON A SLIP OF PAPER AND PUT IT IN THE ENVELOPE ON MRS. POVSE'S DOOR. A DRAWING FOR THE $25 WILL BE HELD NEXT THURSDAY, FEB. 6
