I have been participating in the Mastodon Art and Science Fair for the past 10 years as an art judge and this year as an art director. This organization has always been very professional in the handling of all of the children's entries and they make it a pleasure to volunteer. For me it has always been something I look forward to each year because you get so much more out of it than the time you put into it. Being able to see all the exceptional work that is being created by our local children in art and science makes it all worth the effort.
Review from Guidestar
The MASRF has provided science and art inspiration to thousands of students. As a teacher, I often hear from students and parents about how the fair has helped determine their career choice. Also, heartwarming stories like this - At one of our early award ceremonies the students would come on stage, say their name and school, and then receive their blue ribbon award. After one of the students recieved her award, her parents starting quietly crying. Unbeknownst to us, the student was austistic and this was the first time she had EVER spoken in public!!
