For over 12 years, the Pizz -A-Thon has been developing into a model program in Cedar Rapids, Marion and now Alburnett. Private, public and home school programs have paved the way for others to follow this model.

Farm Bureau, Soil Conservation District, Happy Joes and the Corn Growers Association have sponsored the program and representatives serve as judges in St. Ludimila, Echo Hill, Marion Home School. 

Planning is now underway in the Alburnett Elementary and Ag (FFA) with high school students mentoring younger students.                                     St. Ludimia team presenting their marketing report.
