This fundraiser supports the Back to School Project's vision of sending all local children back to school with new clothing, shoes and backpacks while once again achieving our goal of building confidence and self-esteem in the less fortunate school-age children of our community.
To meet our funding goals, we have added this exciting annual event to our fundraising campaign.

many words correctly as possible in 1 minute.

final round for a chance at becoming Tehama County's Ultimate Spellers.
