If, like us, you’re currently the mother of a teenager, then you know they’re typically not morning people. In fact, before the hour of 10 a.m., they’re pretty much the opposite of morning people. Walking zombies, if you will. Because, for us, that morning alarm clock struggle is all too real, The Local Vault has teamed up with Duxiana and the Greenwich Chapter of Start School Later in a contest designed to raise awareness for the importance of a good night’s sleep, and SSL’s mission of pushing back school start time by an hour.
