Teen Trivia

(Starting 10/7) Every other Wednesday Night at 7:30 pm on Facebook Live and Kahoot, you can compete individually or in teams for a prize pack to be picked up via our curbside service. Each week it’s a different topic, sometimes it’ll be general trivia!

Teen Take & Make (Ages 10-18)

A new kit every week, and a new video every Thursday at 4 pm EDT! Registration for each kit begins one week before the video drop date and continues until kits are gone. All videos will be posted to the Teen Take & Make playlist on our YouTube channel.

Register on our event calendar (each artist should register separately), and then email Lorie to arrange a take and make kit for curbside pickup. You can follow along with the week’s video or use the included instructions to make something special!
