SAS Kendall Students Get Creative for United Way
Miami, November 1, 2012 -
Students at School for Advanced Studies Kendall Campus came up with some fun and creative ways to raise money for the United Way this year. In addition to the regular homeroom collection contests, the students conducted a water balloon activity on the athletic field for student contributors to United Way and held a scavenger hunt on their campus with student groups competing for first place.
Each scavenger hunt team was challenged to locate and then take photos of things on campus such as statues found on campus, a car without a parking decal, a college professor, and artwork hanging in Kendall Campus buildings. This turned into a great adventure for the students as each team rushed around the college campus trying to be the first team to finish getting photos of the items listed in the scavenger hunt. The winning scavenger hunt team is pictured in the attached photo #1. Everyone who participated in this event had great fun in raising money for a worthy cause.
Some of the students who participated in the water balloon activity are pictured in photo # 2. Dr. Derrick Johnson's homeroom should also be congratulated for raising more money than any other homeroom.
United Way Student Campaign leader Ms. Samay Alvarez was very proud of the efforts made by these students on behalf of United Way. Their campaign resulted in a 200% increase over the targeted goals for this year.
Congratulations to everyone for a job well done.
