What is Snowflake?
Evanston 6th-8th grade students have been living it up at Snowflake since it was first held in our community, in 2001. The event aims to teach attendees important life skills such as decision making, communication, and problem solving, in the coolest and most interactive ways possible.
Snowflake engages middle school, high school, and Northwestern students, as well as adults from the community, in order to create a fun and meaningful experience for all involved.
Since 2001, CircEsteem has been able to unite youth from diverse racial, cultural, and economic backgrounds and help build self-esteem and mutual respect through the practice of circus arts. Students will be able to learn and practice 4 different circus acts: the gym-wheel, tight-wire, plate spinning and juggling!
- Snow Jam
Students will participate with their small groups in a variety of teambuilding activities. These interactive and competitive activities will help students learn teamwork, cooperation, effective communication, problem solving, and encouragement while having lots of fun in the process!
