TI Members Become JTI Leaders
On December 10th, Talia Barker and Daniel McKay ran the JTI group. Their activity was to have the JTI members divide into groups and hand off a golf ball on a spoon to the next person without dropping it. Many of the students felt as if they would be able to run with it so they could win. That wasn't the case. By the end of the group members learned that slow and steady wins the race.
On December 15th, Talia Barker and Ashley Heskett showed the group members how communication is very important when a task is given. They were to line up in alphabetical order by their first names, by their birthdays, and by their height while not talking. The students were getting frustrated since most of the students didn't know each other. In the second round the students were allowed to talk. Let's just say their times were cut in half.

"The purpose of the Wood County Youth Olympics is to demonstrate that competition does not have to result in violence. Through this program, Wood County youth are given the opportunity to compete in a conflict free environment. In addition, the Youth Olympics strives to demonstrate the importance of individual accountability and personal excellence.
The Wood County Youth Olympics is an annual event that was created in 1999. It is held every March on the campus of Bowling Green State University. The event is open to 500 4th and 5th grade students who attend school or reside in Wood County.
