Instead of War on 54, this year the Pratt High School student council has created a Drive to Thrive vehicle for food collection, with contests encouraged between area businesses, groups and inviduals.

Pratt-area businesses and individuals are invited to contribute non-perishable food items as part of the Prat High School Student Counci’s “Drive to Thrive” food collection event, which started Monday, Sept. 14.

Team challenge counts of amounts of food collected will be done on Fridays, and those teams, groups or businesses with the highest growth percentage in collections could receive a traveling trophy. 

Those still wishing to sign up for the challenge should email with their desired challenge level, or for more information.

Pratt and Skyline schools are working together to raise food that will be donated to the Pratt County Food Bank.

Drive-thru drop offs will be held at the PHS parking lot on Saturday, September 19 and also Saturday, October 3, for several hours each day.
