The countdown has started to Cash for Schools 2014.
Tokens will be printed in the Advertiser from January 23 that will give schools the chance to win a slice of £20,000 provided by the Louis Baylis (Maidenhead Advertiser) Charitable Trust.
The token collect scheme is open to all state schools in the Advertiser circulation area.
Each school that registers will aim to collect as many tokens as possible, with a minimum of two tokens per pupil enough to guarantee participating schools a share of the cash.
Last year Dropmore Primary School in Burnham received the first prize of £2,000 and St Peter's Primary in Burnham won £1,500.
Another 33 schools received between £207.10 and £1,402.06 according to the ratio of how many tokens they collected per pupil.
The 2014 scheme will again have a top prize of £2,000 and a runner-up prize of £1,500, leaving a £16,500 prize fund to be split between remaining participating schools.
