A few programs at Northview High School and another county program are inching closer to earning grant money this month.

Through the Pepsi Refresh Everything promotion, the Northview Marching Knights, guard program and cheerleading program are attempting to secure possible grant money.

The groups attempted in November, but fell short. The top 10 vote getters in each offered category earn the chance to receive money.

Currently, the idea ranks seventh.

NMK director Bob Medworth told The Brazil Times if the programs earn the chance to receive grant money again this month, it would be used for the following items:

* $37,500 -- marching band uniforms,

* $5,000 -- percussion equipment,

* $3,500 -- guard uniforms,

* $2,500 -- cheerleading uniforms,

* $1,000 -- sound equipment, and

* $500 -- a sewing machine for uniform upkeep.

To vote for the program, log on to http://pep.si/my10votes, which will direct users to www.refresheverything.com/keepthekidsont....

In addition, voting may also take place daily via text message by sending a text to 73774 and placing 103899 in the subject header.

In addition, Habitat for Humanity of Clay County is also pursuing a grant this month.

President Rogene Morge told The Times the organization is in the running for a $25,000 Pepsi Refresh Everything grant and currently ranks ninth in voting.

Habitat for Humanity of Clay County and NMK are members of the same alliance in the voting.

According to officials, Habitat for Humanity of Clay County intends to use grant money for the following:

* $5,900 -- subfloor, trusses, framing, osb board,
