CAMP WUNNA ACT RETURNS FOR 2014!

CAMP WUNNA ACT is a multi-week intensive program where kids get the chance to be a large part of the theatre production experience.  Kids will spend the day planning and rehearsing for a final production that takes place weeks after camp begins.   This is a great program that helps kids with memory skills, team work, problem solving and so many other things. There are two camps sessions happening this year, a 4th-8th grade camp in June  and a shorter K-3rd grade camp in July.   These camps are both designed based on the age ranges of the kids involved.

Camp also includes healthy snacks and recreational time as well to make sure the kids are having a summer of staying fit both mentally and physically.  To learn more about the individual camps and to register early and save money, check out the links below.

First Annual WeACT Christmas Card Contest

One of my biggest goals when I started WeACT Youth Theatre was to try and bring the best experiences I had in my youth in small town Iowa and give them back to the kids in the community now.  One of my favorite annual events was the Mayor’s Christmas Card Contest.   I think it was started by Tom Vilsack and the purpose was to have children in the community design a Christmas card that would be sent out to political figures, other mayors and people in the US. It was a fun time, and I just remember looking forward to it every year.

So, I want to try and bring it back. WeACT has a good  number of supporters from the East and West Coast and I want to make sure they get a Christmas card from us this year! Why not make it better by having it designed by a kid who loves to draw?

Here is how it works, you can download and print an entry form by click here -> (christmascard) or you can stop by our office at 123 North Jefferson Street in Mount Pleasant.  We will have three categories…

PreK-1 Grade
2 Grade-5 Grade
6 Grade-12 Grade

The child just needs to design the Christmas Card in the space provided… it can be color or black and white, but it has to be 100% produced by them. Once you have completed it, you can drop it off at WeACT anytime between 8am-6pm Mon-Friday and 9am-4pm on Saturdays by 5pm on Friday, November 22, 2013.

I will pick the top 5 in each category and post them from 10AM November 25 until 5pm November 29th on our facebook page and in the window at WeACT.  You will be able to go online and LIKE the picture or stop in and “LIKE” it in person.  Potentially 2 votes per person…

One winner from each category will be announced Monday December 2nd at 10AM.  That child will receive a year membership to WeACT Iowa for 2014 and a $100 Savings bond in their name.  they will also have the joy of knowing their card design was seen by random cool people throughout the US who are on WeACT’s Christmas list!

The contest is open to anyone PreK-12th grade in the WeACT area (Southeast Iowa)
If you have questions you can email me at weactiowa@gmail.com or call  (319) 385-1263

I hope you enjoy this as much as I did as a child! I really hope this is just one of many things we can do to help bring some fun back to the youth of Southeast Iowa! Thank you personally for giving me a chance to host this contest that I hope will become an annual event.
