Hy-Vee introduces 'Smiles for Education'

Hy-Vees "Smiles for Education" promotion, honoring the 75th anniversary of the store, is in progress.

During the 10 weeks of this new program, Hy-Vee will hold a drawing to select 10 winning students. Each of those students will receive a free Apple iPod nano Player and each of their schools will receive a donation of up to $7,500 from Hy-Vee.

Parents, teachers and staff from local schools are asked to become part of the program by visiting the Storm Lake Hy-Vee and registering their student's names for the drawing on an official entry form. One winner will be drawn each week for 20 weeks from the entries in the store.
