Some of the Smith-Cotton students led some of the activities. To participate in the bash, Horace Mann students had to pay $100 in Cub Cash, the school's positive behavior currency; have no office referrals, and have 90 percent or better attendance. Participants built structures with marshmallows and toothpicks; had blind taste tests of various foods, and made slime, among other activities.
