CAVALIERS STAR JOHN BATTLE TO UNVEIL NATIONAL STAY IN SCHOOL PROGRAM

CAVALIERS STAR JOHN BATTLE TO UNVEIL NATIONAL STAY IN SCHOOL PROGRAM
 The athletic retailer Foot Locker will hold an assembly program Dec. 17 at 9 a.m. at Harry E. Davis Intermediate School, 10700 Churchill Ave. The assembly is to announce the details of a national campaign titled "Foot Locker Cool School Video Program."
 The national campaign encourages intermediate school students to create and produce their own videos with the Stay in School theme. After successful first-year programs in Boston, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Portland, Miami, Minneapolis and Washington, the program will now be implemented in eight more major cities across the country. The campaign will run for approximately 10 weeks as each school competes for its city's top prize: a pair of K-Swiss athletic shoes for every student from the school that produces the winning video.
 Joining Foot Locker representatives to announce the details of the program is John Battle, star of Cleveland Cavaliers. Battle, honorary chairman of the campaign, will talk to students about the importance of staying in school. He appears in posters promoting the program. Battle will return to the winning school in Cleveland and personally present the students with the free athletic shoes.
 "Cleveland is a great place to kick off our second year's program, as we know the kids here will set a fine example for students everywhere," said Tim Finn, vice president and general manager of Foot Locker. "We are also very lucky to have John Battle helping us get out this very important message."
 The contest videos will be judged on the basis of creativity, content and unique nature as well as the positive effect they'll have on their student peers.
