Upcoming Events Updates: Spring Football Saturday, Spring BBQ and Live the Dream

During spring, Dream Project hosts some of its most exciting events. This year is no exception. Mark your calendar for three events coming up!

April 23: Organized by the 9th and 10th Grade Outreach Team and building on a program launched last year, Spring Football Saturday is a chance for 9th and 10th graders in some of our partner schools to experience a few of the great things college has to offer! Every year, the UW football team hosts a Spring Preview to give fans a chance to see the team before the fall. Last year, students had the opportunity to attend the scrimmage, play football-related games, meet and get autographs from players and eat lunch in the parking lot like you do during a traditional tailgate party. In hopes of appealing to students of all interests, this year, in addition to the football-related events, students will hear from guest speakers involved around campus; participate in Science, Technology, Engineering, Math (STEM) related activities; and get a small tour of the campus.

May 6: At Spring BBQ, high school juniors will come to UW from all of our partner schools to get the full college experience. The field trip includes lunch, a campus tour and a lecture by a UW professor. More information about speakers and MCs for this event to come.

May 25: Live the Dream is a unique event–it gives mentors, parents, families and counselors alike the opportunity to come together to celebrate recipients of the $1,000 Live The Dream Scholarship. This year Dream Project will be giving out 30 scholarships, which is a record number! The ceremony will be held on Wednesday, May 25, in wǝɫǝbʔaltxʷ–Intellectual House on the UW Seattle campus.
