CHARLOTTE, N.C. [Oct. 15, 2014] — Statesville-based Toter®, a Wastequip® brand, and the nation’s leading manufacturer of two-wheel carts for curbside collection of waste and recycling, announces the second annual Toter Technology Bowl to take place during halftime at this Friday’s varsity football showdown between long-standing rivals North Iredell and South Iredell High Schools.
Come Friday, students from North and South Iredell High Schools, alongside Toter employee alumni, will face off in the second annual Toter Technology Bowl half-time extravaganza. Competitors will be challenged to throw mini footballs into Toter trash cans. The team who tosses the most footballs into the can will win a sizeable donation to support funding for their respective school’s technology needs. The opposing team will receive a monetary donation of a slightly smaller amount.

The Toter Technology Bowl half-time competition is a fun, interactive game between rivals North and South Iredell High Schools. Competition participants will win a monetary donation to their school to supplement the Iredell-Statesville Schools (ISS) IMPACT grant. These funds are intended to assist in putting a computing device in the hands of each middle and high school student in ISS.
Iredell-Statesville Schools was the recipient of the Innovative Methods for Personalizing Academics, Complemented by Technology (IMPACT) grant from the U.S. Department of Education. Over the course of a four-year span that began last year, the school system will receive $20 million in grant funds intended to improve academic performance and success of the district’s students by revolutionizing and transforming classrooms into 21st century learning centers. The most apparent aspiration of this digital- and technology-based learning initiative is putting a computing device in the hands of each middle and high school student in the district.
As part of the half-time fun, Toter will toss Technology Bowl t-shirts and mini footballs to fans in the grandstands for both teams.
Toter has employed Iredell Statesville Schools alumni since the early 1970s. The company is active in many facets of philanthropy and community engagement, including the support of local education. Toter is extremely proud to support technology-based learning.
