Within the Future Problem Solvers (FPS) organization, the highest honor a team can achieve is the chance to compete at the International FPS Competition. This year not one, but two FPS teams from Forestview Middle School earned the chance to compete at the international competition June 6-10. This year's competition will be held in Lacrosse, Wisc. and will host 2,000 + competitors from the United States and more than 20 different countries across the world.
These talented fifth and sixth graders are super excited for their chance to compete against the world's best problem solvers. They will spend the next two month researching Criminal Justice Systems, this year's IC topic, as well as fundraising their hearts out to pay their way to the competition.
Donations will help cover conference registration fees as well as travel, lodging, and meal expenses for two teams. The two teams must rely 100% on fundraising activities to make this dream happen!
We will be posting frequent updates on their conference preparations for the next two months as well as International Competition updates once they arrive in Lacrosse. We appreciate any and all support on this amazing journey!
