The Hit Me With Your Best Shot High School Dodgeball Tournament will take place on May 3 from 7 to 9 p.m. at Fuller Hall. The tournament will give students grades 9 to 12 at Northeast Hamilton and Webster City a chance to get out and involved in a substance free activity. Registration forms will are available at NEH and WCHS school offices. Teams of eight to 10 are encouraged to sign up, and the cost will be $5 per person on a team.
Students from NEH and WC came together for the Hamilton County Youth Summit sponsored by Power Up YOUth (PUY) in the month of February. During the Summit, they discussed underage drinking, substance use, and ideas to better the students' activities in Hamilton County. As a result, a group of students got together and decided what activities they would like to see in Hamilton County. The group collaborated with Fuller Hall, Community and Family Resources (CFR), and Bee Inspired CAPP Program through Building Families, to plan the upcoming Dodgeball Tournament.
Community members may support their local high school students by coming to the tournament, sponsoring a team, donating door prizes, or donating to future substance free events in HC. For more information, call 1-877-239-8172 ext. 1407.
