UNION TOWNSHIP, CLERMONT COUNTY, OH (FOX19) - A local Destination Imagination team from West Clermont Schools, The Destinators, banded together to make a difference in their community. Six local 7th graders chose to participate in D.I.’s Project Outreach, a community service competition challenging kids to find a need, take a stand, and make a difference.
This group of kids is passionate about the arts in education and was saddened by the recent school board cuts in the West Clermont district that took away all art programs for elementary school kids.
They partnered with Second Story, a local start up arts center, and hosted a free community art event called Be ARTrageous to give kids the opportunity to participate in various forms of art as well as helped jump start Second Story's class sign ups.
The event was a huge success. Over 300 people came and many kids signed up for continuing art classes at Second Story.
