Scott middle school held their annual Make a Difference fair tonight. Students worked on their chosen projects for weeks leading up to tonight. Kai Sasaki is a sixth grader and had 4 others work in his group.

"We chose the American Red Cross. We did the disaster relief program and we had a passion for all the natural disasters and all the victims," said Sasaki.

This was the 7th annual event and over the past six years the sixth graders have raised over $55,000.

Everyone from the community was encouraged to come. Many parents and families stopped by and talked with the kids at their booths. 

Each booth worked on different topics ranging from poverty assistance programs to the Lincoln Cat House. One of the students had a special reason to choose the group she worked with.

"So I chose the Nebraska Children's Home Society because I was adopted through them, from birth. A lot of kids aren't as fortunate as I am. I chose it because it made me really sad to think some kids go without families," said Maya McGill a sixth grader at Scott Middle School.

Hundreds of parents turned out and donations were expected to be in the thousands.

The kids were proud to show off all of their hard work.
