Willmar, Minn., seventh-grader earns iPad, donates it to special ed classes

WILLMAR -- Annie Schaefbauer worked like crazy to win the top prize in the Willmar Middle School fundraiser this fall. She wanted that Apple iPad2 tablet computer badly -- not for herself but to donate it to her school's special education department.

Annie, 12, who already knows she wants to be a special education teacher, said she knew the special education department needed another iPad. She sometimes works with special education students in Family and Consumer Sciences classes.
