Project Description

Liz lead a team of students to create a fundraiser to raise funds for local nonprofits, inspired by the Magnified Giving Program and project that began in her Probability & Statistics class.
Liz partnered with NTHS and several students in the dance program to create videos about three local nonprofits that were then shared with all students at SOA to vote and choose who would receive $1,000 (top voted) and $500 (2nd place).
Liz shared her passion for giving and presented a giant check in front of all of our local board members, soliciting their participation in the carnival games she arranged and silent auction items so that even more funds could be given to local nonprofits. She also set up an opportunity for donations through the school coffee shop, staffed by our students with special needs.

Content: The top 3 things I learned from this showcase were:

I learned the power of sharing Magnified Giving with my students in Stats class, the power of encouraging a student individually to pursue her passion, and the value of working as a team with Butler Tech staff and board members in order to make a huge impact on our students and our community.

Culture: This project relates or connects to my family, background, peers, community or my own personal interests in these ways:

As a member of the Hamilton community, I very much appreciate the contributions to YoungLives and Hope’s Closet, as chosen by our students.

Metacognition: In reflection, one thing that I would have done differently during my journey with this showcase is:

I would have liked to rehearse the presentation ahead of time.

Social/Emotional: One thing I am most proud of by completing this showcase is:

Magnifying giving through the hearts of young people.
