Chambard's fourth-grade class won the grant as part of the California Milk Advisory Board's Real Seal Appeal Sweepstakes. Families saved 274 "Real California Milk" seals off dairy products, with two-thirds coming from student Sarah Gonzalez, her parents and friends.
The 50 books came from Scholastic Books, which partnered with the Milk Advisory Board. The California Milk Advisory Board (CMAB), representing California's dairy families, awarded 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.
