Students at AdVenture STEM are getting ready. Coming up, on December 13, 2017 at 5:00 pm, AdVenture is hosting Charity Fair. Charity Fair is when students find a charity that they connect to and make an item that is connected to the charity. Then they sell their product to parents. Students put the money in a envelope then give it the teacher.

AdVenture Student Council votes on which charity is the best and will receive all the money donated. Charity Fair is just like Student Exhibition Night, but students sell stuff. Parents walk around buying projects from different groups in the classrooms. Students race to get the most money from their friends.

At the start of the Charity Fair, parents sit down in chairs like the movies while students pitch their Ignite presentations. They tell the parents why they choose their charity. Students tell them why you should buy their products. Students can’t put down other students because that would make the other students feel bad. Parents write notes and give them to the teacher when the presentation is done.

Yasmine Correa, one of the students at AdVenture STEM, said she loves Charity Fair. She loves to talk to the parents. She also said the rooms are too crowded and you can’t hear yourself talk sometimes. Yasmine likes to work in groups because it is less pressure to get everything done. Yasmine said if she could change one thing, she would put less people in each room. An AdVenture student for the past three years, Yasmine said her favorite Charity Fair is this one coming up.

Charity Fair was originally an idea developed by Mrs. Zaccheo. She made it so students can feel what it’s like to sell your own product in the real world. It was a project that turned into Charity Fair by accident. Every grade level works on the Charity Fair but each year the expectation is higher. This is every student’s favorite exhibition night. We hope you love it, too.
