Feedback & Keys to Success

How do you feel BAW participation benefited your organization and the local community?

I missed this year’s emails because our school has a new filter so I wasn’t able to get as many BAW things as I would have liked. I was too late to order booklets, etc. but the kids really enjoyed their pencils, stickers, and erasers. It was a fun way for us to review for the AP exam while celebrating the brain.
