Palmyra-Haiti Technology Project Lottery Drawing
For Our March Trip To Washington, DC


Unfortunately, we have a very limited number of seats available for our March 14th trip to Washington, DC., so we will use a lottery system for the middle school to select those that will go to DC. High school students going will have a separate selection system that they will be using. We will be guests at the Haitian Embassy and GlobalGiving that day.

Basic idea of the middle school lottery:
  • The drawing will take place during one of our February meetings.
  • Each person who is an enrolled member of the club will get their name placed once in a basket for their name to be potentially drawn.
  • To increase your chance at getting your name drawn, you can have additional slips with your name placed in the drawing basket for doing the following:
    • Attend meetings
    • Respond to select g-mails
    • Participate in our special projects/events
      • ! Must have academic eligibility during Q3 to be eligible !
