Dear OABEST Expo Participants,

     In light of the ongoing national emergency, I am contacting you with an update regarding the status of the Eighth Annual OABEST Expo (May 30, 2020).  In accordance with Governor Tom Wolf’s announcement that Pennsylvania school buildings will remain closed to the public for the remainder of the school year, it is with a heavy heart that I inform you that OABEST Expo will be cancelled.  

 

     This decision was not  made lightly and many factors were involved.  As you are aware, OABEST Expo is a district wide celebration of student achievement involving multiple demonstrations, shows, and activities.   Due to the prolonged school closure, students and staff were unable to complete projects for the science fair, art show, live demonstrations, exhibits, and performances. 

 

     Not only is OABEST an opportunity for students to showcase their knowledge and skills, it is also a unique venue for community, business, and industry partners to promote their products and services. We do not wish to place our partners in a difficult situation given that many have ceased normal operations due to the Governor’s stay at home order.

 

     In the coming weeks, I will contact each program sponsor to see if they prefer a refund or wish to use this year’s sponsorship as payment towards next year’s event.

 

     On behalf of the Octorara Area School District, I  wish you health and safety in the weeks to come. I look forward to your continued participation in the OABEST Expo.  Together let’s make the 2020-2021 Expo even bigger and better than ever.
