Ready Set School is here to help Winona County children get the supplies they need for the classroom.

To qualify

Eligible students are those entering grades K-12 who already receive Free and Reduced Lunches through their school.

Apply for assistance

Each year, applications are accepted April 15 – May 31 through our online form. If you need assistance filling out an application, please contact the front office at your child’s school.

Once your application is received, you’ll receive a confirmation email. If we have any issues with your application, we will contact you within two weeks. Please do not submit an application more than once.

Get your voucher

Vouchers are mailed to students in July. Vouchers can only be used at participating local businesses for the purchase of back-to-school supplies, clothing, and shoes. Vouchers expire September 30 and must be used before then. Vouchers have no cash value and should be spent in full.


If you have questions, please call or email our director:
