The video, along with the school’s written application, will be featured on the White House Web site and the public will have an opportunity to select Clark Montessori as one of three finalists that best meet the President’s goal. President Obama will select a national winner from the three finalists and will visit the winning high school to deliver the commencement address this spring.
