Activities Exchange 100 Percent Slips Since the beginning of 2013, at Eisenhower High School in Shelby Township, MI, any student who receives a 100 percent on a quiz or test receives a "100 percent slip" from his or her teacher. At the end of each month, all 100 percent slips are entered into a drawing. The student council vice president pulls two winners who receive a gift card and are announced on the school news. This project supports Eisenhower students and motivates them to succeed on tests and quizzes. Canned Food Sculpture Contest After some disappointing canned food drives, the student council at Yukon High School in Yukon, OK, decided to stimulate interest by regularly participating in a local canned food sculpture contest. They select a shape to create, and then build it at school with the food and funds provided by students. "The items we have built include a replica of our hometown flour mill, the space shuttle, a tank, a roller coaster, a Chinook helicopter, an American tribute with a wall of remembrance, the Twin Towers, the Pentagon, a fire truck, and a police car-and last year, a full-size Hummer," says adviser Darryl Andrews. Parking Lot Sale Pink Out! NHS students at Randolph Central School in Randolph, NY, participated in a local Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk. The students individually collected money from sponsors, each aiming for $100. The district also hosted a Pink Out! Day, where all faculty, staff, and students (grades K-12) were encouraged to wear as much pink as possible and donate anywhere from 25 cents to one dollar. All together, this NHS chapter collected and donated over $800 for breast cancer research. 28 leadership for student activities Accommodating both bargain hunters and those who want to get rid of old household items, NHS members at Metropolitan Christian High School in Dallas, TX, hosted a giant "garage" sale in the parking lot of their school. Members divided the parking lot into spaces and charged people a fee to set up their items for sale. After paying the fee, any proceeds the seller made were his or hers to keep. NHS raised additional funds by selling refreshments and holding a car wash during the sale.
