    The students who pass their final AP tests next year will earn $100 for themselves for every test they pass.

    The cash rewards are part of a new program to expand student participation in Wilby's Advanced Placement program. It is funded by a $451,113, grant from the National Math and Science Initiative.

    well... considering that I DO have ideas being thrown about in multiple threads right now and the sum total of your forum participation seems to be love threads dedicated to me in the flame zone....
