OSSINING, N.Y. -- Ossining Union Free School district was named one of four districts to receive a $15,000 grant as part of the Raise Your Hand for Anaphylaxis Awareness Competition. 

Raise Your Hand was a nationwide competition that encouraged school districts to virtually “raise their hands” at Anaphylaxis101.com to have their community counted as one that supports anaphylaxis education. During the four-month competition, nearly 150,000 hands were raised across all 50 states, representing 835 school districts.

An estimated one-in-13 children live with a food allergy in the U.S. The Raise Your Hand competition helps to increase awareness and prepares participants for life-threatening allergic reactions.

In addition to Ossining, the schools awarded grants were Cheektowaga-Sloan Union Free School District (Cheektowaga, N.Y.); Oxford Township School District (Oxford, N.J.) and Utica Community Schools (Utica, Mich.)
