Two Wauwatosa elementary schools are among the competitors in a contest that will raise money for Milwaukee Habitat for Humanity.
Madison and Underwood students transformed mailboxes into works of art during art classes. The creations will be on display for a month beginning Friday in the Mayfair food court so the public can vote and bid on their favorite mailboxes.
Schools were given a mailbox and $50 for supplies. David J. Frank Landscape Contracting donated products for the project.
A dozen schools entered the competition, including Divine Savior Holy Angels High School, just beyond Tosa's border in Milwaukee. The school that raises the most money will receive a $500 gift card from the mall.
