CedarMania Youth Event to Host Approximately 1,300 Students

by Public Relations Office

Cedarville, Ohio-About 1,300 sixth through ninth graders from Ohio and neighboring states are expected to attend Cedarville University`s CedarMania on Friday and Saturday, Feb. 10-11. This year`s theme, "Treasure Seekers: Quest for Truth," will focus on encouraging students to search for a "heavenly treasure," instead of looking for meaning in one`s possessions. Students will enjoy activities including a student praise band, exciting competitions and crazy games, a campus-wide scavenger hunt, a late-night pizza party, and much more. This high-energy, overnight event will feature 2002 Cedarville graduate John Sorrell, who is currently a youth leader in Beijing, China. "We appreciate this opportunity to provide activities designed specifically for junior high youth groups," said Cindy Wilkins, associate director of conferences and event services. "Three-hundred and fifty University students will enjoy staying up all night to lead games, serve as small group leaders for the students, and generally interact with the young students." Media interested in covering this event should contact the public relations office at 937-766-4159. More information about CedarMania is available at www.cedarville.edu/cedarmania.
