Fairchild Challenge Award Winners 2016-2017

On May 2nd students, their families and some amazing teachers joined The Dawes Arboretum staff in celebrating another year of STEAM learning and creativity through the Fairchild Challenge.  To help students and teachers remember our theme this year- Every Drop of Water Counts– customized water bottles were distributed to all.  After sharing pizza and desserts, the overall scores were announced and cash awards and certificates were presented to winning schools.  We enjoyed a fun performance by the Heritage Middle School students and shared all the marvelous work submitted throughout the school year.
