FILL THE BUS IS A COMMUNITY-WIDE SCHOOL SUPPLY COLLECTION AND DISTRIBUTION DRIVE BENEFITING LOCAL GREATER LORAIN COUNTY KIDS.

Community agencies collect supplies at their location and volunteers are activated to collect, sort, and distribute collected supplies to participating Lorain County school systems.

In 2023, over 25,000 school supplies were collected by participating organizations and distributed to 14 local school districts. Not only does this program put essential tools for success in the hands of our youngest learners, but teachers are relieved of purchasing costly supplies for their classroom.

COMPETING TEAM INFORMATION

Every competing team will participate in a single preliminary round via Zoom with their team members, which will be scheduled on a date of their choice between March 24th and April 7th.

The top 4 teams from each category will advance to the in-person event on Friday, April 19 at Lorain County Community College, where both the semifinal and final rounds will take place.

Regardless of advancement, team registration guarantees each team member attendance to the in-person event with drink ticket and buffet dinner.
