Lantern Prizes: Prizes will be awarded for the best handmade lantern for three age categories: Most Creative Lantern in Upper, Middle and Lower Division (Preschool-5th) age divisions. At workshops prior to September 29, Garrison Forest students will make lanterns of various designs and materials. GFS families will be given an opportunity to purchase these lanterns prior to the Mid-Autumn Festival, with proceeds to be donated to UNICEF to help children in need. For safety purposes, all GFS lanterns will use LED-lights. Participants may also come with purchased lanterns, flashlights, camping lanterns, etc.
