Two Unity teams entered in the competition this year and BOTH teams won at the regional level!
With a budget of only 200 dollars and no adult guidance, our teams committed over 70 hours of work, use innovative thinking, collaboration and everyday materials (sheets, cardboard boxes, and PVC pipe) to not only solve the challenge THEMSELVES but to place 2nd! Both teams wrote plays, incorporated special effects and focus elements, built stages with the technical capability of moving a cast member from one side to the other and performed their plays for judges in the regional competition.
The kids ROCKED IT and won the opportunity to travel to the University of Tennessee to compete with 1800 teams from around the world! The trip is extremely expensive, and we need YOUR help to get us there. Will you help us represent Unity at this prestigious competition? Check out the creative rewards our students are enthusiastically offering to show their appreciation for your donations!
