In April 2019, Lovettsville Elementary Student Ambassadors and Program Advisors teamed up and hosted our own Fuel Up to Play 60 Summit. It was modeled after the National Summit and included the Youth Council students. We invited 4 nearby elementary schools that have expressed some interest in the FUTP 60, but were not sure where to begin. Each school brought 8 motivated students to learn and see what FUTP 60 looks like. 14 additional program advisers also attended to learn more about FUTP 60 and bring those ideas back to their schools in Loudoun County,. The day started by having the Lovettsville Elementary SA's greet the visiting students and leading them through an obstacle course. Once all the visiting school were here, Program Advisor Hugh Brockway led the introductions and shared the background information about FUTP 60 and the day's agenda. He also introduced 3 former students that were there to share their experiences with the program and what it was like to attend the national FUTP 60 Summit.
After the introduction session, the Lovettsville SA's led each of the attending schools and students through 4 separate sessions. The last part of the day was eating lunch together as a group to allow the students to network and share more ideas. Before leaving, students and program advisers gathered more ideas and resources to bring back to their school.
It was an amazing success!
