Ukraine took home first prize at this year’s CCC festival.


The Cultural Communications Club (CCC) hosted the annual Cultural Festival on Friday, March 16, following the theme of ‘Harmony.’ Groups of club members represented 25 countries by creating displays, serving food and providing attendees with information about their country’s culture.

Attendees traveled through the CHS halls and visited booths decked out in colorful decorations. At 6 p.m., a lineup of culturally-themed performances began in the cafeteria.

Junior Lauren DeFelice of Wall performed “La Vie en Rose” on the ukulele.

“It’s a French song about love, so it kind of fit the theme,” DeFelice said. “Love is harmony.”

After the performances, CCC council members announced the winners of this year’s festival. Ukraine took home first prize, while Switzerland and Syria placed second and third, respectively.

Junior Connor Martin of Spring Lake Heights represented Ukraine with four other juniors. He participated last year as well, but approached this year differently.

“I think this year we tried to have more fun with it, rather than stressing out,” Martin said.

All the money raised through ticket sales will benefit Saint Jude’s Children’s Hospital, Spanish teacher and CCC adviser Sabina Campbell said.

CCC president and senior Veronica Yaron of Little Silver was pleased with the success of the event this year.

“I have never felt more proud than when it hit 5 p.m. and I walked around the school and saw all the countries setups,” said Yaron. ”Not only that but thanks to all of the hard work of everybody on council, the entire event ran without a hitch.”
