Each year all students in the 6th grade class are asked to research different charities and find one that they are passionate about supporting. They present their "chosen" charity to classmates with a convincing speech and visual aids. Class winners are selected, and the winners from each class present to the entire grade.  The sixth-grade students then vote on which charity they ultimately want to fund. All proceeds from the 6th grade car wash go to that particular charity. 
 
This year our winner is Lily Larson , who spoke on behalf of the Boys and Girls Clubs of Central Florida. The Boys and Girls Clubs are known nationally for providing a fun, safe and constructive environment for kids and teens during out-of-school hours. They offer programs and services to help young people succeed in school, develop leadership skills, and maintain healthy lifestyles. Our runner-up is Makayla Colombo , who presented her speech on behalf of the National Junior Diabetes Foundation. JDRF is the leading global organization funding type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. Their strength lies in their exclusive focus and singular influence on the worldwide effort to end T1D.
