X.A. Minnesota State High School League Form A Grant

The Minnesota State High School League Foundation is a nonprofit association, serving both public and private schools, created to complement the Minnesota State High School League by providing support for Minnesota’s high school youth to participate in athletics and fine arts. Minnesota State High School League Foundation’s goals are to promote the growth of high school students through participation in valuable extra-curricular activities.

The primary goal of the Foundation is to award grants that assist, recognize, promote, and fund extra-curricular participation by high school students in athletic and fine arts programs. These grants are awarded based upon gender balance, school size and geographic location to the extent possible.

The Minnesota State High School League Foundation Board of Directors has determined that the number of free and reduced lunch students in grades 9-12 will be used for classification purposes. The MSHSL Foundation encourages each school to seek students whose family income may be limited and encourage them to participate in athletic and fine arts programs in each school community and to recognize the role we play in this endeavor and to assist us in our continued efforts to engage more students.

Pursuant to Minnesota Statute 205A.11, by December 31 of each year, the school board must designate combined polling places.  A combined polling place must be at a location designated for use as a polling place by a county or municipality.  

In addition, Minnesota Statute 204B.16 states that by December 31, the governing body of each municipality and of each county with precincts in unorganized territory must designate by ordinance or resolution a polling place for each election precinct for the following calendar year.  

In the event of a school district special election, the school district will use the precincts and polling places established by the City of Owatonna.  For its rural voters, Clinton Falls Town Hall, an established polling place in the county, will serve as a combined polling place.  

Attached is the resolution establishing the polling places and designating the hours the polling places will remain open.
