Isaac, along with 4 of his classmates, recently won the honor of representing our State of South Dakota in an International Competition for Future Problem Solvers. He and the rest of the team will be traveling to Lansing Michigan, May 27th - May 31st to compete against other states and countries across the world. This is part of the PROBE program that he is involved in at school and basically the kids were presented with a "futuristic problem" and had to come up with a way to solve this problem and also put on a skit at the State competition to represent their solution.
In addition to raising funds to support this trip, each student is encouraged to bring at least 300 items each of something that represents our State of South Dakota. At the conference all of the kids from around the world get together and "trade" these items with each other.
We have contacted and received 100 pins from the Department of Tourism but need to come up with more ideas on what else to bring and where to get them.
This is where I am hoping you can help me! If you have any ideas of items that would be fun to bring please let me know. If you know of who best to contact - someone who might have access to South Dakota memorabilia to be donated - that would be awesome! I am not always creative in thinking of where to look...so if you are please leave a comment or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org!!
Thank you so much! This is a unique opportunity for Isaac and something he is really excited about so if you could also pray for the group and the brave women that are driving these kids 12 hrs to MI that would also be appreciated!!
