The Ecostore roadshow visited Dargaville on May 7 as part of a four week journey calling into 50 towns and cities around New Zealand giving families the chance to compete and learn.
The roadshow, sponsored by More FM, featured face painting, prizes and interactive learning while 12 lucky Dargaville families participated in an ‘against the clock’ competition to win cash.
The ‘Kena Klan’ and ‘Bulls Up’ came first equal in the competition which involved following a specific design and building an ecostore soap tower in one minute.
The teams at the top of the leaderboard split the prize of $250 cash.
Pru Kane from the ‘Kena Klan’ family told XVenture who organised the day that their team strategy was to allocate different roles to each of the family members.
“I was the tower builder, one daughter was the soap collector and the other daughter was the soap runner.”
Pru said it was a lot of fun and it worked well when each person had their set job. Dad, Rowan, was cheering the team from the sideline Each team also gets to nominate a club, school or charity to win up to $5,000 if the team is at the top of the national leaderboard.
Top of the national leaderboard is currently held first equal by two teams in Auckland.
