We’ve all seen the bumper sticker for Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology, the exclusive Fairfax County school for the intellectually talented: “Jefferson. We came for the sports.” Pretty funny.
It’s basically a nationwide school spirit competition conducted by Under Armour, in which schools must accomplish tasks large (“Vanquish an archrival”) and small (“photo of the school sign”) and collect votes. Of more than 900 schools participating, Jefferson is currently second behind only Mainland Regional High School of Linwood, N.J.
But any school can use $140,000 of new free gear. The voting ends Dec. 15, so you can go here to vote daily (which is legal).
