Want to put on a fundraiser that’ll get the kids and teens excited? Plan a Hunger Games themed event. Just like in the popular book series and movies, set up districts (as many as you have enough kids for) and have kids compete to see who survives the Hunger Games. Divide the participants into groups of two’s (preferably one boy and one girl on each team).
You can create any type of challenges you want, but they should have some similarity to the movie, like a bow & arrow (plastic) shooting contest, food foraging (you can make the kids eat gross food), walking on a beam, climbing walls, dodge ball, etc. You can award points for each challenge completed within a certain allotted amount of time or for each challenge won. For example, give the teams two minutes to shoot a plastic arrow through a ring from a certain distance. The team who gets the most arrows through wins the challenge and gets 5 points. Others who complete the challenge successfully but get fewer arrows through get 3 points. Those who don’t get any arrows through the ring in the allotted amount of time don’t get any points. When the contest is complete, there should be one district that comes out on top. The girl gets to be Katniss and the boy gets to be Peeta, each receiving a hunger games survival trophy. Have the participants collect sponsorship money from family and friends for each challenge they survive. This is a great fundraising idea for schools, clubs, sports teams and youth groups.
You’ll want to start promoting this fundraiser at least 2-months in advance. Be sure to promote heavily on all your social media channels. Also, create posters and flyers that you can place throughout the community.
