INDIANAPOLIS, IN--(Marketwired - January 06, 2014) - STANLEY Security, a leader in providing schools with safer learning environments, will announce the four winning schools of its $500,000 TOGETHER FOR SAFER SCHOOLS Grant Program in the afternoon on Thursday, January 9.

Once nominations were finalized, the voting process began and schools rallied their students, teachers and communities to encourage daily voting either online at www.stanleysaferschools.com, or by text message. Voting ended at 11:59 pm EST on December 13. STANLEY will make presentations to officials from the winning schools on Friday, January 10.
