Adult Egg Scramble planned for March 18

By Kimberly Gasuras -

This year’s Adult Egg Scramble to benefit the area’s Junior Achievement Program is set for March 18 at Colonel Crawford High School.

“Our community is really fortunate to have a program like Junior Achievement, which helps young people succeed in both our local and global economy,” director in training at the Bucyrus Area Chamber of Commerce, Tyler Jacobs, on Tuesday.

According to Junior Achievement of Central Ohio, JA Worldwide is the world’s largest organization dedicated to educating students about workforce readiness, entrepreneurship and financial literacy through experiential, hands-on programs.

All proceeds will benefit Junior Achievement students in Crawford County. Junior Achievement programs teach students a wide range of concepts and skills needed to prepare them to be successful. These concepts include understanding how businesses work, career planning, job interviewing skills, budgeting, savings, credit card risks, and how to start their own business.

Several local schools participate in the program, including Bucyrus City and Colonel Crawford.

The Adult Egg Scramble event is sponsored by the Ohio Mutual Insurance Group and is an after-dark event for those 18 and over. The football field at Colonel Crawford High School will be blocked off with cones and Easter eggs are scattered throughout the field. The eggs are filled with various prizes including candy, raffle tickets, and slips of paper to redeem for items donated from the community.

“I would like to say thank you to the businesses and individuals who volunteer and support this great cause for the community’s youth.”

Participants are asked to bring a flashlight, a bag for their goodies and friends to experience hunting in the dark for fabulous prizes.

“Please don’t miss this egg hunt – – it’s a great opportunity to have some fun and support junior achievement,” Jacobs said.
