I just went to the Parent's Meeting for the Science Olympiad my 6th grade son will be taking part in. I wish the rules of organizations could look more like the ones we received:
1. No experience necessary
2. Safety and teamwork first
3. Everyone must be on time and ready to learn
4. Strict adherence to the code of ethics is a requirement
5. Have fun
They ended with this quote from Albert Einstein: The most important human endeavor is the striving for morality in our actions...Only morality in our actions can give beauty and dignity to our lives." Sounded like the groundwork for a great organization...if only!
