Pick a card, any card.

Bob Sikes over at Scathing Purple Musings got his hands on an email from Florida’s StudentsFirst rep urging allies to get out and comment on blogs.

The email from StudentsFirst regional outreach manager Catherine Robinson says there’s a contest for the best “rapid response” and included links to some recent stories. The winner gets a “gift card to the restaurant or store of choice.”

A copy of the email was passed along to us, and a couple of StateImpact Florida posts with references to the parent trigger were on their recommended commenting list.

The parent trigger was narrowly defeated during the legislative session earlier this year and allies, such as former Gov. Jeb Bush, vow that the bill will be back. StudentsFirst spent a lot of time and effort urging lawmakers to approve the bill this year.

We love reader feedback, so we’ll make this easy. For all our parent trigger stories, click here and comment away.

We’ve already gotten two comments…
