Carpet One, a retailer in NW Arkansas, ran a contest to donate carpeting to a local school library and the Jefferson Elementary School (Springdale AR) was the winner. But in view of the fact that the school is soon to be replaced with a new building, Carpet One agreed to donate the equivalent sum of cash ($2,000) in lieu of the new carpet.
