High School Cause Fair 2020
What is the Cause Fair?
The Cause Fair provides AJA High School students the opportunity to raise public awareness of the critical social issues we face today. AJA’s British Literature students have spent the past two months researching philanthropic causes and preparing presentations to share their concerns with the public and propose solutions.
Due to COVID-19 and the transition to remote learning, not all students were able to give their presentations to an audience. The students worked very hard on these presentations so we are bringing them to you! Watch their videos, vote for your favorite and leave your comments on the form at the bottom of the page!
