The Outdoor Power Equipment Institute and Discovery Education are awarding $5,000 to Morgan Elementary School in the second annual "Spruce Up Your School" sweepstakes. The grant, part of the TurfMutt digital learning program, will help the Paducah, Ky., school expand the amount of green space on its campus. "Teachers understand that green space around the school helps kids be more active, investigate how things grow, and learn about their unique ecosystem.
