Learning on Display

The Wildcats and Vikings may be rivals on the football field, but the two schools are putting their sports differences aside and coming together for an educational extravaganza.

"Both schools have come together to do something for the community."

And with the help of more than 30 vendors, that shouldn't be too hard.

"Sometimes when parents need help, they just really don't know where to turn. They don't know what to do or who to ask. A lot of these vendors are people they can come to and get some sort of help."

With everything from educational toys, to books and anti-drug displays, organizers say this expo has something for everyone.

"Some of the vendors even have little souvenirs and trinkets that they can give to the children as they come to the booths."

And while it may all seem like fun and games, let's not forget the expo is all about educating. And that is just what Project Learning Tree vendors plan to do with the help of Mother Nature.

"All of the activities with Project Learning Tree are hands-on. We teach how to think, not what to think, and it's a good tool for the teacher to use in the classroom."

And if that's not enough, organizers say door prizes and entertainment will be provided throughout the afternoon.
