JSA plans dodgeball tournament to raise money for charity

The Junior Statesmen of America club at Findlay High School is planning a dodgeball tournament to raise money for a maternity wing in Tanga, Tanzania.
“I think a lot of us are looking for a good excuse to throw things at each other, and this is a good reason to, since all the proceeds go directly to a good cause. It provides some karmic balance,” Vice President of JSA and senior Colton Hamilton said.
The tournament will cost $5.00 per person and there can be up to 6 people per team.
“The tournament will be arranged in a single-elimination bracket, and the teams will be placed in the bracket at random, regardless of size,” JSA member and sophomore Alyssa Montalbine said.
The tournament will take place on Friday, February 20th from 5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m.
“The JSA Dodgeball Tournament will be held in the Findlay High School gyms on February 20. All Findlay High School students and middle school students can sign up.  Middle schoolers have their own bracket,” JSA Advisor and Gifted Programs Coordinator Judy Withrow said.
Teams can sign-up by picking up a form from any JSA member, Mr. Barkey or Mrs. Withrow and by giving them the form with $5.00 for each team member.
