The school is using this event as a fundraiser for our school, since the majority of families do not have the means to help finance activities at the school. Our hope is to raise funds to support our basic operation as well as fund specific projects such as sending students to national journalism conventions, purchasing equipment for use by our newspaper and filmmaking students, and providing more resources in our library.
One of the traditional activities during PearlCon is a silent auction of materials that have been donated by local merchants. We are seeking distinctive items and baskets, such as toys, small appliances, tickets, gift certificates, or any services. Local businesses may make a monetary, product or service donation. If you choose to participate, your store will be recognized in a special supplement of The Pearl Post, our school’s nationally recognized award-winning newspaper. If you wish to provide us with a banner, will be happy to display your banner during the Convention in a prominent location.
