This year, Bossier Parish Schools took home the win for the 2019 Red Kettle Challenge.

Bossier Schools took on Caddo Parish Schools in a fundraising competition that raised more than $13,000 in one day for the Salvation Army.

Bossier schools raised $6,893.40 on Saturday, Dec. 7. Caddo Parish Public Schools, who won the challenge last year, brought in $6,123.43.
