Kiwanis K-Kids Mini-Float
Barranca K-Kids float for "Project Eliminate", a 3-year collaboration between UNICEF and Kiwanis International to eliminate maternal neonatal tetanus, which is a killer disease that is still prevalent in about 34 countries, notably in Africa and Indonesia. The Barranca K-Kids constructed their entry from a standard size shoebox, according to the rules of the contest. It depicts the flags of the 34 countries still at risk, and a 5" diameter globe with colored pins to show the locations of these countries. The motto on the front of the float is taken from the K-Kids pledge, which in part says "I will try to make the world a better place in which to live".
