Problem Solving Team

H.B. Stroud Elementary Community Problem Solving Team travels to Wisconsin!

Athens very own elementary students won second place in their division of an international competition. The H.B. Stroud Elementary Community Problem Solving Team traveled to Wisconsin to compete at the International Future Problem Solving Program competition following their First Place win in the state of Georgia. At the competition in Wisconsin, the students were required to build a table demonstration about their watershed project including a tri-board, models of the rain garden they built at their school, and a tablet display to show the video PSA they wrote for their school. The group was also interviewed by competition judges. Outside of the competition, the team was able to meet students from around the world at the conference! At the end of the weekend, the HB Stroud team was awarded Second Place in the Junior Division at the Wisconsin conference for their amazing work to improve watershed health on their campus. This all would not have been possible without the generous support of the Athens-Clarke County community, which raised $11,000 in only three days to pay for the team’s travel and lodging to the competition.
