If you’re sick of having unwanted, loose change come out of your laundry machines, pockets, floors, and those containers that tend to overflow every few days, a new event that has been added to George Mason High School’s Spirit Week is great for you.
Every year, in the lobby, George Mason High School has a “Coin War” where a jug is placed to represent each grade. Each grade puts coins inside of their individual jug to try and raise the most money. Although you may be used to the same old rules with the coin wars, this year, the rules have changed.
In previous years, the rules have been that when you add silver coins (dimes, quarters, nickels) to the jugs, they would give you negative points. According to Mark Sokolowski, this year, “All coins and bills will be counted as positive.”
The breakdown of the points is as follows:
Pennies: +1 Point
Nickels: +5 Points
Dimes: +10 Points
Quarters: +25 Points
Any bills: Each dollar put in is worth 100 Points.
The winner of the coin wars will be awarded 1000 points to their spirit week score. Second place will get 800 points, third will get 600 points, and fourth will be awarded with 200 points. The coin war starts next week on Monday, so start collecting all of that loose change you have lying around the house and put it in your grade’s jug! Game on George Mason!
