Netcong School participated in their first Souper Bowl Not the football game, the Souper Bowl of Caring! It’s changing the game of football into a game of caring where schools and organizations collect canned soup for a local food pantry.
This year, the gifted and talented students in grades three through eight in Netcong planned, coordinated, and executed the event. The students created signs to promote the Souper Bowl, they encouraged their fellow students to participate by visiting classrooms to discuss the importance of their donations and how it effects their community. The students also used organizational skills to collect data on the students that had brought in cans of soup. Students used their food donation to cast their vote for their favorite team in this years “real” Super Bowl, the Denver Broncos or the Carolina Panthers.
There were a total of 336 cans collected. The Denver Broncos was determined the “winner” having received the most votes of 174. The Carolina Panthers followed closely with 162. All donations were given to the United Methodist Church in Stanhope.
