The Cereal Box Challenge was a smash hit again this year.
Three south Windsor schools collected more than a million grams of cereal in the 11th annual friendly competition. All of the cereal that is donated during the challenge has been shared among 24 schools (including Queen Victoria PS, pictured below) and 3 youth centres in the area.
Glenwood, Bellewood and Talbot Trail public schools brought in an average of 636 grams per student.
Glenwood, the smallest of the three schools Captain Crunched the competition. Griffins collected a whooping 896 grams of cereal per student. They packed a bus with leaf bags filled with cereal boxes. Sharp Bus Company provided the transportation to pick up and deliver the cereal, while members of the of the Essex Optimist Club did most of the lifting and packing.
Bellewood was second with a total collection of 572 grams per student.
Talbot Trail brought in 531 grams per student.
Each school, this year, surpassed its totals from previous Challenge collections.
