Planning a Graduation or End of the Year bash? Join us at this new event to get some ideas and practice those party planning skills. Compete in teams to create the perfect event while staying under budget. This event is open to teens in grades 7-12 and is part of Money Smart Week at Dover Public Library. Call the library at 330-343-6123 to register.
Teens will work together to pick out a theme, decorations, a menu, activities, prizes, and more. They will be given a strict budget that they must stay under. The team to create the best party within the budget will be crowned the Champions. Pizza and pop will be provided for encouragement and inspiration.
The Judge will be a Library Staff Member, and judging will be based on the following:
- Creativity of the theme (1-5 points)
- Execution of the theme (1-5 points, Did you just call it Avengers but not follow through?)
- Decorations (1-5 points for creativity and filling the space)
- Menu (1-5 points, for creativity, giving everyone enough to eat)
- Engaging Activities (1-5 points, would people be bored at your party?)
- Prizes/Goody Bags (1-5 points, do they go home empty handed?) (Depending on the party, you could also replace this with Thank You Notes. But be sure to include that in your budget.)
- Budget (Pass/Fail: 30 points for Staying in the Budget)
Details of the number of guests and the budget for the party will be given at the event.
