Great Galesburg Shake 2018
Posted on 03/09/2018
Great Galesburg Shake 2018The Great Galesburg Shake is an opportunity for students in grades 4 - 12 to use their manners and conversational skills in a professional environment. In 2015, Galesburg CUSD #205 adopted the 12 Tools for Triumph to teach students how to give a proper handshake, use eye contact, and present themselves for today’s opportunities as well as in the future. Several educators from District #205 have attended the Ron Clark Academy in Atlanta, GA. At RCA, they hold an annual competition called The Amazing Shake, which inspired the Great Galesburg Shake.

Shake Team
Since 2015, The Great Galesburg Shake has provided students with several local opportunities as well as trips to Chicago and Washington, D.C. None of this would have been possible without the kindness and generosity of our community. Last year was 100% funded by donations from the community and local agencies. The tremendous success of the 2016 Great Galesburg Shake required donations of over $10,000. It is our goal to not only continue this wonderful event, but to see it grow year after year.

If you would like to be a part of this unique opportunity, you can help by donating online or volunteering to help at the next Great Galesburg Shake event in April 2018!
