Today is an exciting day, indeed. We've been anticipating Day 1 of our 100,000th Student Campaign for several months now and today, we're officially launching our new campaign website. Over the next 14 months, we'll be bringing you stories and highlights from, and about, our students, our supporters, and our shared impact.
Not only are we kicking off our campaign today, but May 1 is also the day every year that 4th-6th grade teachers begin to apply for next school years O'Neill Sea Odyssey program through our on-line application (beginning at 10:00am). Only time will tell, but one of our teachers will ultimately be participating with OSO's 100,000th student in May or June of 2018.
As of today, though, O'Neill Sea Odyssey has served 92,765 students and in honor of them, we would like to introduce a few to you. Last week, we had the pleasure of hosting Mr. Curry's 5th grade class from Vinci Park Elementary School aboard the catamaran. Featured here from the program are Aidan, Justin, and Jasmine who sat down with our Media Intern, Olivia, to answer a few questions about their experience.
She asked them:
1. What did you learn today?
2. What was your favorite part about today?
3. How do you think the ocean is important to the environment and for people?
4. What do you want to learn more about and what are you still curious about?
We are so impressed by these three and grateful to them for taking the time to share their insight. They truly are O'Neill Sea Odyssey Ocean Stewards.
