RPI Eco Princess Festival

The second event that I attended this past Saturday was the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute Eco Princess Festival!

Miss Syracuse 2014, Adrienne Wilson, spearheaded this event last year on her college campus. It was such a success that she was asked to host it again! She only had a week to prepare for the festival, but did a wonderful job of putting together an event that was entertaining and educational for the children attending. Adrienne's platform, Project Earth: ECO Adventurers Rescuing Their Home, is dedicated to teaching youth the importance of taking care of our planet. This is such an important and relevant topic, and I was delighted to play a small role in empowering the next generation with the tools they need to be ECO Adventurers.

My job as Princess Tiana was to take part in an exercise designed to explain to children where the different ingredients used to create chocolate are sourced from.

First, the children stopped by a world map.

Princess Aurora then explained to them where each of the ingredients used in chocolate comes from, and helped them to identify the countries on the map.

Once they had a better understanding of where their treats came from, the children came and did a traditional beanbag toss!

Each number on the beanbag toss corresponded with a candy that the children could take home with them. Pretty sweet, right?!

Once the children had completed this and other fun learning activities, they could write down the ways they planned to take care of the world we live in.

Thank you, Adrienne, for inviting me to take part in this event and support your platform! 

With my fellow princesses!
