Skit makes the grade for Lee County students
A Lee County Middle School East creative team is headed to Iowa to compete in the World Finals.
The Odyssey of the Mind team gets five problems at the beginning of the school year, and they choose one of the problems to creatively answer.
This year, the question they wanted to focus on involves literary classics.
The group came together, without any outside help, and decided to do a skit to answer the question.
The coaches for the team say watching how creative the students are amazes them.
"Building our set for regionals, we didn't have a very good set, but we fixed it for state," Jacob Bowser, sixth grader said. "Now, it's enough to make us go to World [Finals]."
This is their first year that the group is going to the world finals, and they are looking for donations.
The team will be having a car wash and bake sale at Mullins Pools on May 5.
The team is accepting donations on their GoFundMe page.
They are also looking for sponsors. Contact email@example.com for more information on becoming a sponsor.
