Schreiner University to Host Shack-a-Thon April 21—22

Shack-a-ThonSchreiner University students will hold a Shack-a-Thon on April 21—22 to promote awareness of the conditions suffered by the poor worldwide and to raise funds for Habitat for Humanity.

The building will take place from noon to 8 p.m. on Friday, April 21.

At least 3 people from each team must spend the night in the “shack.” Judging will be at 8 a.m. Saturday, April 22.

Sponsored by the Non-Traditional Students Association and Campus Ministries, this annual event awards prizes for the most innovative engineering and design concepts. In what has become a Schreiner tradition, teams of students, accompanied by live music will create shacks from any and all available materials from cardboard to plastic, from bird nests to squeegees.

People wishing to help can come by the campus quad and "vote" for their favorite shack by donating money to the group who built it, or they may buy a t-shirt at the event for $12.
