SUPPORT OUR YOUTH EXCHANGE STUDENT
HIGH SCHOOL CONTESTS
The  4-Way Essay Contest, open to 9th Grade Students in District 7390, has undergone some major modifications for 2018-19. First, the topic of the essay has changed.  The Four-Way Test originated when Herbert J. Taylor wrote the four familiar questions in the course of transforming a failing aluminum company to a thriving, profitable one.  Seizing upon this history, this year we will ask 9th Graders to write an essay on How Rotary’s Four Way Test helps me confront or deal with the issue of failure?  We felt this topic was particularly appropriate as recent studies are showing that the younger generation is experiencing spikes in anxiety and depression stemming from difficulty in handling adverse situations.  We are hoping the Four-Way Test can be a resource for students as they confront these issues in the coming years.  We are also planning to change the essay prompt on a yearly or bi-yearly basis to keep the contest fresh and relevant to students.
 
HERSHEY AREA PLAYHOUSE Walk-A-Thon
On Sunday, September 16th, 2018 Hershey Area Playhouse will hold the second annual 10,000 Steps Walk-a-thon fund raiser, from 1 PM – 3 PM.  (Rain date Sunday, September 22nd)  The Walk-A-Thon promises to be a fun and fit activity for the whole family, with a beautiful walking trail laid out starting at the playhouse.  We’ve mapped out a leisurely walk on tree lined sidewalks, equivalent to about 5000 steps.  If you are interested in completing the entire 10,000 steps recommended by the American Heart Association, two laps of the route will get you there.   Our goal is to help the fundraising committee raise at least $30,000 which will help offset our operating costs. Help us stay fiscally fit by taking 10,000 steps for your health and ours!  If each walker or team of walkers raises $300.00, we will achieve our goal.   We’re hoping to make this walk-a-thon the best fund raising event ever, so for those who love a little competition, there are prizes for the top three walkers who raise the most dollars, and free food for all to celebrate our success.
To volunteer or donate food or prizes for the event, or to find out more about this fun fitness activity, please contact Walk-A-thon chair Cory Wilkerson at coryw2.0@gmail.com
