The contributor’s plaque was designed by Wes Brown and the NLHS Ag Department.   Steve Glover with Management Awards contributed and designed the engraving plates for the plaque.

The top fundraiser from all four campuses will win a grand prize of a Weekend Getaway to Great Wolf Lodge.  First place winners at each school will receive a 32” flat screen TV, second place winners will receive a 3DS Nintendo with 2 games and third place winners will receive a $75 gift card to Hibbett Sports.  Students receiving a donation of $40 or more will receive a t-shirt.

Paris, TX, March 28, 2012 – While studying the stars, galaxies, solar system and space, John Dickinson’s 8th grade science students at North Lamar ISD used their research skills and applied their knowledge of flight dynamics to build gliders out of shoeboxes.  They then tested their gliders outdoors with the furthest going to Chad Box with a flight of 80 feet.  The students will finish up their unit by making rockets out of two-liter bottles.
