Playing Games to Change Lives


Lodi High School’s Interact Club hosted their annual Video Game Tournament on January 29. There were competitive and noncompetitive games going on throughout the school on consoles such as the WiiU, Xbox 360, and PS3. There was a raffle that took place, which was won by Michael Pantano. He received a gift card to Juicy Platters along with a T-shirt.

Ms. Getrajdman, the adviser of Interact Club, shared her thoughts on the tournament: “As an adviser, the video game tournament is a complex event to organize. It requires a lot of delegation and a lot of patience. Events of this magnitude do not succeed unless everyone pulls together. With the help of my officers and club members in both Interact Club and the Gaming Club, the event was a huge success. We raised money to fund two cleft plate surgeries and are considering organizing another tournament this Spring. I would specifically like to thank all of the players and teachers who came out to show their support.”

Thank you to the Interact Club for making a change in the world one day at a time!
