Guest Post written by FLL team, Snow Birds
The FLL team Snow Birds from Northwood Middle School in Illinois co-sponsored a “Senior’s Prom” as a community connection for this year’s theme. The four other teams from their school “coopertively” worked to secure all decorations, food, punch and a D.J. for tunes from the 40’s-60’s. They reached out with their invitational posters through our elderly residential service buildings, grocery stores, their places of worship, the library and local coffee shop. Our small town newspaper printed the invitation as well. We had about 20 guests attend who enjoyed the music and comradery with students who also presented their innovative solutions for the upcoming regional. Even though the theme for next year is different, because everyone had so much fun, they have decided to try and make it an annual event!
