Sorry to hear that your daughter's community service work to FLL was not
acknowledged by her school.
A key word in your message is DAUGHTER. A young lady volunteered at a
While the public schools and colleges are scrambling to try and figure out
why women aren't interested in engineering and math, they take time out to
reject your daughter's community service hours at a Lego League robotics
event dominated by males. Maybe you should point out that your daughter was
inspiring young girls, a minority group in the engineering world.
Personally, I'd make my own extra fancy sticker to put on her high school
diploma and forget about the high school's sticker for 50 hours of approved
community service. Just make sure that she includes this very worthwhile
volunteer experience on her college applications. I'm sure every college
that reads your daughter's college application will be very impressed by HER
contribution to a robotics event.
Best wishes to your daughter,
