We would also like to thank all those who helped with this trip by donating airline miles, purchasing cookie dough, purchasing Pampered Chef items or hiring us to earn additional funds.

The topic for the competition was Emergency Planning. We would like to thank Mr. Eric Mohrmann, Mr. Scott Walden and Mr. Alan Thye for their assistance in researching this topic.

As part of the competition, we exchanged mementos with other attendees from all around the world. We would like to thank the following for their donations: City of Kenai, City of Soldotna, Homer Electric Association, Kenai Peninsula Borough School District and Sen. Tom Wagoner.

We thoroughly enjoyed our experience at the International Competition. We are grateful to our community for all the support.
