A tradition continued Friday afternoon at Allen East High School.

The Allen East academic lottery has been held for the last 28 years and rewards students with prizes for doing well in class.  Students are entered into the lottery twice each nine weeks they have all A's and once for A's and B's.  Students with perfect attendance are put in the running too.

This year about 251 students were entered, which is about 72% of the student body.  It's a way to encourage students to do well during the year and have a little fun with their hard work.

"Our students are tested so much academically and there's a lot of pressure on them," said Stephanie Miller, an English teacher at Allen East High School.  "This is a way to reward them for the strong grades in the spring after they went through so much pressure and get to just have fun with scores instead."

Over $7,000 worth of prizes were donated by local businesses.
