SeaPerch Nationals - West Mifflin

$1,480 of $4,500 goal

Raised by 26 people in 15 days
Christy Kozar  WEST MIFFLIN, PA
This year students from my 8th grade class at the West Mifflin Area Middle School are competing in the SeaPerch National Competition on May 19 & 20 in Atlanta, Georgia.  The students won this opportunity by placing first at the Pittsburgh Regional SeaPerch Competition on April 8th.  This is a fantastic learning opportunity in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).  Our problem becomes the amount of money we need to get us there, house us, and register for the competition.  We WILL make it there somehow, but I am hoping you may see fit to help us out.  Every little bit will help us to meet our goal as fast as we can.  We have a little over a month before the competition and plane tickets will need to be taken care of very soon.  We look forward to representing Western Pennsylvania in Atlanta and we thank you in advance for any help you can provide!

We have had some great help over the last few days. One of our students had airline miles donated and we don't need to pay for that ticket now!! YAY!! It also looks like Bettis will pay for our Engineers! YAY!! I have changed our total goal to reflect those changes. We still have a way to go, but we are getting closer!! Thanks to every one who has donated so far and keep sharing!!!
