Special to the Daily

Summit Middle School hosts its eighth annual World Fest ” the highlight being international cuisine ” and the first 100 food ticket purchasers will receive a free Italian ice dessert (it’s almost like ice cream … ).

In addition to tasty treats,

the festival celebrates community arts organizations and student learning. And the best

part: Proceeds from food ticket sales and the silent auction

benefit the National Repertory Orchestra and the World Wildlife Fund, the latter of which the students voted on.

“This year’s World Fest at Summit Middle School promises to be one of the most dynamic and well-attended yet,” said Julie Fishman, IB coordinator and World Fest organizer. “Students will be bringing their depth of learning to the interactive cultural booths they will run for our guests.”

Plus, games, arts and crafts from around the globe will be available for kids.

“The community partnerships we have been so fortunate to cultivate are once again proving how gracious and vibrant Summit County citizens are,” Fishman said. “Businesses have donated to our silent auction everything from the whimsical to the practical. Local restaurants have repeated their culinary generosity, including authentic Mexican, Indian,

Irish, Italian, Chinese, Cajun and even Thai (food).”

Community arts organizations will participate in a variety show, which will highlight “the rich cultural and artistic opportunities that Summit County provides for our youth,” she said.

And, of course, the festival wouldn’t occur without the commitment and energy of the volunteers, students, teachers and community adults. Fishman said they infuse the festival with a “momentum that sets the stage for an outstanding and memorable event.”
