EdCamp Crane

From humble beginnings...

The EdCamp Crane was born in Grand Island, NE, during EdCamp Central Nebraska. He was picked up at the garage sale across the street from the high school as a gift for the person who traveled the farthest to the EdCamp. The idea is that whoever wins the EdCamp Crane gives it to the person who has travels the farthest at the next EdCamp they attend.
