Children In Crisis Honors Top Fundraising Schools

Children In Crisis, Inc. (CIC) recognized the top fundraising schools at the May 23, 2022, School Board meeting and thanked the School District for their support during the Change for Children fundraiser.

Change for Children is an exciting fundraiser within Okaloosa and Walton County Schools. Elementary, Middle, K-12 and High School students bring in their change to help support The Children’s Neighborhood. In the past there have been talent shows, dress up days, pie your teacher in the face contests, and other fun activities to help get the students and staff excited about the campaign.

The Change for Children Program in Okaloosa County is run by Alpha Delta Kappa, an international honorary organization of women educators dedicated to educational excellence, altruism, and world understanding.

Southside Primary School won the K-12 Community School division and was the overall winner, raising $5,032.00.
