Reviews for Mastodon Art-Science Regional Fair

Rating: 5 stars  

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.

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!!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my career as a teacher. Parents are often telling me how much their children enjoy the fair.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

keep working to make the fair the best!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the positive interaction with students, volunteers, and parents.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

extremely dedicated to making the fair a success.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

sponsor more workshops for students, parents, and teachers. Also, could afford to have professional artists and scientists work with the students in special week long sessions.

Ways to make it better...

we had even more volunteers.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

finances. Gettng the money to keep the fair going is a real challenge.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I want to see the fair continue to be a positive influence on children in our community.
