Oakhill's 5th graders attended the annual iBuild competition on Thursday, April 18. iBuild was created to bring students from across the Kansas City area together to experience and connect with industry professionals in careers such as craftsmen, architects, engineers, CAD technicians, marketing, accounting, and construction.
Our teams competed against projects from 12 other schools and had 2 of the 6 finalists for best overall greenspace. This is extremely impressive considering that our 5th graders compete against 6th graders. We are so proud all the 5th graders and their projects great job!
The finalists were team Da Green Marshmallows consisting of Grayson Kirkpatrick, Rory Freyermuth, and Tyler Johnson for their green landscape plan. Also for their green landscape plan team, M&M&A, consisting of Mia Flanagan, Madeleine Clark, and Ainsley Pardon was a finalist for best overall greenspace projects. Mia Flanagan, Madeleine Clark, and Ainsley Pardon also won the award for the best landscape project.
We are so excited that our students get to participate in this event every year and proud of their continued accomplishments.
