Projects do not always go according to plan. Sharing what you learned can help you and others plan similar projects in the future. Help the movement learn from your experience by answering the following questions:

  • What worked well?

Well the plan to have it at a School university worked very well. And also the fact that i was on national television and i took some time to make mention about this project and a number of people where calling me the following day trying to find out how they can join the competition.

  • What did not work so well?

First of all the Covid 19 pandemic most of the programs where cut short we we didnt have a mass upload we pushed it online but the turn online wasn't something to be happy about. Oh and the award ceremony was moved to September hopefully things would have claim down.

  • What would you do differently next time?

I think if we don't have a pandemic things would run prefect.
