Delta Magnet School held its annual Fall Carnival last week to raise money for the annual 4-H trip.
Students bought tickets in order to participate in the festivities. They played games in order to win prizes and ate snow cones. Some of the many activities set up included face painting, Mustang lanes, toy walk, temporary tattoos, jumper, Coke toss, cake walk, Mustang hoops and fishing for Mustangs. Walmart sponsored the carnival and parents helped by donating.
"My goal was to make at least $1,500 and we raised over $2,000," Janice Miller said.
The event was a fundraiser to pay for the 4-H students' field trip to Baton Rouge and New Orleans for the annual 4-H Night in February. Delta is one of two schools that participate in Morehouse Parish and this will be their third year to attend. Delta students will join 4-H clubs from across Louisiana to celebrate positive youth development with Hoops and Clovers with a fun night of Pelicans basketball. A portion of each ticket price paid will go back to the Louisiana 4-H organization. Plus, the Pelicans halftime show will feature an exclusive 4-H presentation.
On the trip, students will also stop to tour the state capitol, state museums, aquarium and Mardi Gras World.
"I'm looking forward to the kids interacting with the players and just getting a chance to interact with other kids across the state," Miller said.
