2017 Leap Sandcastle Competition

This past weekend, our 5th grade class participated in the Leap Sandcastle Classic – the largest sandcastle competition in Northern, CA. Teams comprised of architects, engineers, contractors, designers, corporations, and local elementary school students worked together to build giant sand sculptures based on a certain theme; this year’s theme was CASTLES! CASTLES! CASTLES!  This meant it could be any kind of castle – classic, imaginary, video game themed, or futuristic. Our student’s partnered with Turner Construction Community, UC Berekely, and Dirtt to create there very own Sanderella . The Funds raised by teams and sponsors go towards arts in education. Last year, Leap Arts was able to serve over 6,000 students across 25 Bay Area schools with hands on learning experiences in the arts. This year’s goal was to raise 300,000 to help continue expand its programs.
