Alma Schrader knowledge-a-thon

By Rebecca Smoot

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS)- With safety being top priority, many schools are getting away from door-to-door fundraisers.

Instead students at Alma Schrader in Cape Girardeau are selling their brains!

Kindergarten through fourth graders took part in a "knowledge-a-thon" Wednesday.

Students have been working for weeks on a list of 100 questions.

The students got pledges or straight donations for questions they got right.

The event is expected to raise more than $10,000.

Donations go straight to the PTA which will spend it in the classroom.
