My son's fifth grade had a states fair recently. He was assigned Vermont which he knew nothing about. He grew to love it and found out many interesting facts. His favorite was that Ben and Jerry's is made there. He decided to make his own ice cream flavor for the State Fair and named it Cookie Craze.
Here is his State Fair display

"When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say, 'Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.' To this day, especially in times of disaster, I remember my mother’s words, and I am always comforted by realizing that there are still so many helpers - so many caring people in this world."
