STUDENT-LED CULTURAL AWARENESS

A Melting Pot Fair at the Wellsboro Green Coming Soon

 

by Katarina Swendrowski - March 7, 2019

On Thursday, February 28, three juniors from Wellsboro Area High School attended the local Wellsboro Rotary Club to talk about an exciting event they have planned.

Alexander Chilson, Abigail Colton, and Katarina Swendrowski, along with Mercedes Bailey, who did not attend the Rotary meeting, are part of the Tioga County Youth Leadership 2.0 program. For this program, students were asked to come up with an event that would ignite their passion. These young women decided to become Tioga County Culture Advocates and are going to be hosting a Melting Pot Fair at the Wellsboro Green.

This fair will have a variety of booths from local businesses and organizations who wish to educate the public about different cultures. A booth can include facts, pictures, or other expressions about a different country and it’s people. The presentations can be simple or complex. Booth operators can also advertise their businesses by selling their products, foods, or distributing a brochure.

he Tioga County Culture Advicotd hope to communicate diversity and overall create a positive environment.

Please take a few brief moments and watch today’s broadcast feature.

For any questions or if you want to have a booth place email: tiogacountycultureadvocates@gmail.com.
