GOLDSBORO, NC (AP) — A Goldsboro high school is seeking votes from the public in its bid to get President Barack Obama to deliver a June commencement address.

Wayne Early Middle College High School is competing against five other schools from around the country that have been named finalists in the Race to the Top competition. Each school’s video campaign was posted on the White House website Thursday. Public votes will narrow the competition to three candidates, and Obama will select a winner from among them.

Goldsboro students talk in the three-minute video about the school’s focus on college. Students at Wayne Early Middle College are dually enrolled in both high school and college courses.

Voting ends April 29.
