Water Wars is an activity that comes around every spring with the participation of the juniors and senior of Lebanon High School. This competition between students helps raise money for the Thirst Project, while also having some spring fun.

Each team consists of two people that will receive three different targets for each round. Players may pick up their assigned targets during homeroom in the main entrance on the day that the round begins.

The official competition started on Monday April 22nd and consists of three rounds. The first round goes from Monday morning (10:45 AM) to Friday morning (10:45 AM). The second round is known as the weekend round and will go from Friday morning (10:45 AM) to Monday morning (10:45 AM). During the weekend round, student’s targets will be worth five points each. Reminder: Saturday March 27th is off limits due to prom.

Players must earn points by getting their targets out and must place in the top thirty to move on to the next round. Up to two bonus points may be earned if students bring in four or more canned foods to Mrs. Wolfgang’s room.
