Tenth Street students win first in nationwide Nestle contest

Classes give funds from crafts to Humane Society

(Continued)

Knight said the project taught them important “everyday skills for when we grow up” like math and how to be a good salesperson.

In the process, Sachse said, the students learned economic concepts such as supply and demand, figuring costs and persuasive advertising.

It’s something her class does every year. But she entered the contest on a whim after seeing a flier for it.

She didn’t even realize it was a national contest at first with about 50 other schools. She thought she’d deliver their contest entry in person and headed to the local Nestle factory just to learn the contact person was in California.

At the end of the year, a group of Nestle workers stopped by with ice cream and Minute to Win It like games for the kids — “just a fun ending to the year,” Sachse said. The school also received a total of $1,500 with Sachse’s and Lallathin’s classrooms receiving $500 each.

Sasche said she’ll probably buy books for her classroom with the money. She added that she’s very proud of the kids and thinks “they realized the impact” of their work.

“Not one child said ‘can I keep this money?’” she said. “They all were very giving.”

Schieve said the money the kids raised will go toward helping the animals, whether it be to spay or neuter them, give them vaccinations or feed them, etc.

The organization runs completely on donations and fundraisers like Tenth Street’s, she said, so the Humane Society really relies on its community.

“That was fabulous,” she said. “Oh my gosh, it was so unbelievable what those kids accomplished.”

Entries in the Nestle contest were judged based on content, creativity and the overall impact of the community service project.

East Elementary School in Pendleton received second place for making scarves for elderly residents at a retirement home and singing carols when they delivered the wrapped gifts.

They then gave their reward money to students in Moore, Okla., after the deadly tornado that struck in May.
