AUGUSTA — The Children’s Discovery Museum recently was selected as one of 200 nationwide causes to compete in State Farm’s Neighborhood Assist voting phase for a $25,000 award.

If awarded, the museum will use the funds to launch a new program called “Museum without Walls,” a mobile museum that will bring interactive exhibits to schools, libraries, farmers’ markets and community events throughout central Maine.

Each person can place 10 allowable votes daily through Aug. 25.
