Big Woods Elementary School in St. Michael finished first and received $10,000.

Each school received a check at a ceremony June 5.

Albertville Premium Outlets’ School Bucks program went from November 2016 to May 2017 and allowed shoppers to earn money for their favorite schools. After shopping, customers brought their receipts to the guest services center, where points were credited to the participating school of their choice. One point was awarded for each dollar spent, with opportunities for double or triple points throughout the year.

In addition to the winners, three other elementary schools participated in this year’s program: Albertville Primary School in Albertville, Fieldstone Elementary School in St. Michael, and Lincoln Elementary School in Elk River.
