THANK YOU!

Our group successfully funded our trip with the help of your donations, so thank you very much! Both teams placed in the Top 10 in the nation See More

THE STORY:

This fundraiser is to benefit Ligonier Valley Middle School students participating in the Technology Student Association (TSA) Tests of Engineering Aptitude, Mathematics, and Science (TEAMS) competition. Fifteen students on two teams from Ligonier Valley Middle School participated in the regional competition last month, and both teams qualified for the national competition, to be held in Nashville, TN, on June 28-July 1, 2016. We have already applied for and received grants totaling around $7000, but we still have a ways to go to reach the $10,450 we need to fund our entire trip. Our goal is to fund the entire cost of the trip, so that there will be minimal, if any, financial burden placed on the families of these students. Along with this Crowdrise campaign, we plan to have other fundraisers such as a sub sale in town and a car wash.

Here is a breakdown of our budget for the trip:

Registration: $100 per student/coach x (15 students + 3 coaches) = $1800

Transportation: Airfare (PIT-BNA) $225 per student/coach x (15 students + 3 coaches) = $4050 Shuttle to/from airport in Nashville = $50 (x2) = $100

Lodging: $200/night x 3 nights x 6 rooms = $3600

Food Allowance: $20/day/student x 3 days x 15 students = $900

Total: $10450

The students involved in this project are in the seventh and eighth grades, and have been working on honing their mathematical and problem-solving skills throughout the year. These students have expressed an interest in engineering, and excel in a variety of subjects including mathematics, writing, and science. Earlier in the year, these students participated in the Future City Competition held in Pittsburgh, and have been working alongside engineers from The Markosky Engineering Group, Inc. who have acted as mentors throughout these competitions.

This competition will provide the students with the opportunity to further test their skills at the national level. Not only will this be a great experience for the students in terms of showing off their abilities, but it will provide them with a unique opportunity to meet students with similar interests from across the entire country. The national competition includes a written essay component, a prepared presentation on a particular topic, and a problem-solving session. The students will also have some downtime during their trip, which we plan to use to explore the Grand Ole Opry and other Nashville landmarks, further enhancing the learning experience of this trip.

Thank you for your support of the students of the Ligonier Valley!
