    Need help: Trying to acquire $2500 grant for local youth program

    Over the past 3 years I've been volunteering in multiple ways to help support my local youth football program, the Moosic Raiders Junior Football Association. I currently serve on the association board of officers as the secretary, along with being the website webmaster, coach and parent of 11 yr old twins on the football team.
    Our website: http://www.moosicraiders.com

    I'm in the process of acquiring a $2500 grant to be award by Liberty Mutual Insurance for the football team and part of this endeavour requires reaching out to parents, coaches and friends to complete a 10 question quiz.

    If you have 10 minutes to spare continue reading:

    Take the following quiz and when prompted, give credit to MOOSIC RAIDERS JUNIOR FOOTBALL ASSOCIATION at:

    After you take the quiz, it'll ask you to register and verify your email. Look in your email account and click the verify link, then search and give the MOOSIC RAIDERS JUNIOR FOOTBALL credit.
