Junior Achievement Finalizes Plans for Achieve-A-Bowl

 Starke County residents can help give local students the chance to learn the basics of economics, by taking part in a bowling event. Junior Achievement’s 2016 Achieve-A-Bowl will be held next month in Knox.

The annual fundraiser helps the nonprofit organization provide economic education to more than 740 students throughout Starke County. Local business leaders and parents volunteer to help educators teach local youth the basics of economics, business, and workforce readiness.

There are still plenty of opportunities to help out with next month’s Achieve-A-Bowl. Organizers are looking for organizations to sponsor bowling lanes, at a cost of $100 per lane. They’re also still accepting applications for bowling teams. Registration is $50 per team, and Junior Achievement is challenging each bowler to raise at least $60 to support its programs.

The Achieve-A-Bowl will take place Wednesday, April 20 at Bowlaway Lanes in Knox. Check-in starts at 5:30 p.m., while bowling is from 6:00 to 8:00.
