The California Milk Advisory Board (CMAB), representing California’s dairy families, announced the award of more than $1.4 million in cash, books and school supply prizes to elementary schools in southern California as part of the Real Seal Appeal! sweepstakes drawing. Elementary schools in 10 southern California counties participated in the sweepstakes, which reached more than 42,000 teachers in 99 districts with information about healthy eating for students and families. Participants collected Real California Milk seals from milk and dairy products to enter the drawing.
The districts winning the most prize money were Los Angeles Unified School District - the largest district in the area - with $527,000 in prizes, followed by Wilsona School District and Mountain View Elementary School District.
Each Real California Milk seal submitted counted as one sweepstakes entry, so the more seals collected, the more opportunities schools had to win. Top winning schools include:
- Twin Lakes Elementary School, El Monte $59,500
- Vista San Gabriel Elementary School, Palmdale $53,500
- Ocotillo Elementary School, Palmdale $35,500
