This could be you!

Johnson students will have the opportunity to become tributes in the campus arena during the “Hunger Games” game which will be hitting campus on Monday Dec. 9 as a fundraiser for SERVE.

The game will last five days, starting at 6 a.m. Dec. 9 and lasting until 11:59 p.m. on Dec. 13.

“The game is essentially a big game of tag,” said SERVE student Kailie Gulino. “Each tribute will be assigned another tribute to tag out during the course of the week.

“Once one person is tagged out, the next tribute will get the name of their previous target and “hunt” them.

“The main objective is to have fun, of course, as well as a time to give our students a chance to make our campus its own arena.”

This fundraiser game is Johnson’s own rendition of the popular book series by Suzanne Collins that has inspired several box-office hit movies. The series takes place in the dystopian, post-apocalyptic society of Panem where every year The Hunger Games are held in which tributes ages 12-18 are lottery-chosen from each of the twelve districts to compete in a televised battle to the death.

The money raised from this event will go to benefit the Badger Alternative Break experience to Ometepe, Nicaragua, where students will be working with a local community to bring clean water to their village.

Sign-ups for the fundraiser will begin Dec. 2 and run until Dec. 6 in the SERVE office. Participation is $5 and upon signing up students will receive additional information on the game.

So may the odds be ever in your favor.
