Forget selling candy bars to raise money for a class trip, the 5th graders at Woodward Avenue Elementary School in DeLand, Florida are far more clever!
IPG donated rolls of Mossy Oak Break Up Camo duct tape to Woodward Avenue Elementary School's 5th grade Odyssey of the Mind team to raise money for their international competition at University of Maryland at the end of May.
The class sold 12 inch strips of camouflage duct tape to the other students at their school for a dollar a piece. The duct tape strips sold like hotcakes once the kids found out what they were for:
taping the assistant principle to a tree in the schoolyard!
She began by standing on a yellow stool while the students lined up and took turns applying their camo duct tape strips where they so chose. They began with her hands, then her shins, kees, thighs, and made their way up until they reached collarbone.
She was a good sport through it all, but there were rules. No taping her hair, her face or her exposed skin! The kids followed the rules implicitly, knowing she'd eventually be cutdown and free to discipline any offenders!
It took over 300 students, the entire staff, and 2 and a half rolls of IPG's Mossy Oak Break Up Camouflauge duct tape to get the assistant principle hoisted to the tree with out the yellow stool.
