Special guests on the show include two of the 12 elementary school teams competing on November 15. Representing Southern Pines Elementary are Jada Harrington, JT Mayo and Caleb Nocton. Team members from Pinehurst Elementary are Ava Booker, Noah Lyons and Claire Murden. Teams from Sandhiills Farm Life and Westmoore Elementary will be back to defend their crown.

These 5th graders are all special young people who have earned the right to be part of this important fundraiser. Their organization, preparation and skill sets will make all Moore County residents proud of the type of students that the Moore County Schools are developing and nuturing.

These 5th graders will inspire you as they did all the adult participants in this radio show.
