This month, the Tampa campus is hosting Penny Wars! Each department decorates their own jugs and then the sabotage begins to unravel! Here is the nursing department’s decorated jug. All of the proceeds from this month long event will go towards the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. The mission of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is to cure cystic fibrosis and to provide all people with the disease the opportunity to lead full, productive lives by funding research and drug development, promoting individualized treatment and ensuring access to high-quality, specialized care.
How to dominate Penny Wars:
- Students from class put their pennies in their class’ container. One point is received for every penny in the container.
- Classes may put other coins and paper currency into the containers of OTHER classes. Each silver coin or bill reduces the number of points from that container by the amount of the coin. (e.g. a nickel reduces the points by five, a dime by ten, a dollar by 100, etc…) This is where strategy counts. Have fun with it!
- Containers are emptied and counted daily. The total monetary amount of silver coins and paper currency is deducted from the total number of pennies for the day.
