The voting has opened for the annual War of the Walls competition at five MasterLube locations in Billings and Laurel.
Each year, one student from each of five schools in Billings and Laurel is chosen to paint a mural on the wall of the MasterLube station.
The winner is chosen by public vote and earns a trophy.
Voting will close at noon on Wednesday, May 11 and the winner will be announced on Friday, May 13.
MasterLube is also hosting fundraisers to support graduation parties at each school.
This year's fundraiser will be on Saturday, May 14 from 7 a.m.-6 p.m. Each school will “adopt” a MasterLube site for the day to conduct their fundraising. Every dime a customer spends at MasterLube that day will go directly to the schools for their graduation celebration. MasterLube retains $0 for product cost, labor, or overhead.
