GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. - Each year, 13 ON YOUR SIDE gets in the spirit of the holiday giving season with the School Spirit Challenge!

This year, students and staff at local schools braved the rain to participate in the School Spirit Challenge.

Schools from all across West Michigan help set up a collection drive for Toys for Tots. And schools that signed up before Thanksgiving have a chance to win $1000 during our live School Spirit Challenge show on Friday, Dec. 14.

Dave Kaechele drew the winner shortly before 7 a.m. as Ottawa Area Young Adult Services! Congratulations!

So far, the School Spirit Challenge has collected more than 13,000 toys.

A list of the participating schools can be seen below:
