Awards Ceremony 3/3 4:30 pm via ZOOM


Congratulations on finishing Project Make It.  This year was a special year that will be like no other and we made it.  I am so proud of everyone!  We have awards to give out 🙂  We wish we were able to have a big event and hand them out in person but we’re doing it over ZOOM.  All the teams will be there and at least we can have a moment for the kids to share what they made.  We have trophies, prizes and raffles to give away.    Check back here for the ZOOM link.
