The Full Story
You are invited to attend the Fair and support hundreds of Columbus City School students who gave time, talent and concern to serve others this year in their schools, communities and beyond. A strong showing by Rotarians and guests is important to continue solidifying our long, strong and valuable partnership with CCS.
Agenda: If your schedule permits, join us from 11-1:15. If you only have an hour, the 11-Noon interaction time with students is……“priceless.”
- 11:00 – Noon. Time for Rotarians, community leaders, CCS officials and other luncheon invitees to view the project displays and engage students in conversations about: project goals, activities, results and personal learning through community service involvement.
- Noon – 1:15 PM. Rotary Luncheon featuring selected project presentations by students, scholarship awards, and brief commendations by community leaders.
Location and Parking:
- The Fair is at COSI this year. They are closed to the public on May 2, so there will be ample, close parking available in the COSI lot. $5/car.
Student “Service Above Self” Project – created in 2003 consistent with Columbus Rotary’s commitments to:
- Live our mission – Service Above Self.
- Help CCS nurture a culture of service by fostering community service attitudes, knowledge and skills among its high school and middle school students.
- Enhance the quality of life through implementation of student-led community service projects focused on Columbus schools, surrounding communities and around the world.
High School Fair objectives:
- Provide a showcase for 21 CCS high schools as they exhibit 63 student-led community service projects and provide an opportunity for student teams to discuss their projects with teams from other schools, Rotarians and other community leaders.
- Recognize and honor all projects and an exemplary project from each school.
- Award various Rotary scholarships.
- Recognize the Fair’s community partners.
Past Attendees – you know the significance and reward of attending so we’ll “see you again.”
First Time Attendees this year – you have a wonderful experience to look forward to.
