Jemicy Lower and Middle School held its annual Can Derby to benefit a worthy cause – The Maryland Food Bank.
The Derby, a long held tradition at Jemicy, collects more than 800 cans yearly for this eagerly anticipated event. The Derby inspires the students to donate, and it highlights the importance of this charitable undertaking. The Can Derby consisted of three events: races to see which cans rolled the fastest down a ramp; races to determine which cans jumped the farthest; and a beauty contest, during which students dressed up the cans in accordance with this year’s theme, “Race Cars,” and displayed them for judging.
