FARGO — Students at Carl Ben Eielson Middle School got to enjoy a little reward for giving back.
The students were able to mess the mugs of nine teachers with whip-cream pies.
The school concluded their annual Coin War, raising nearly $3,200 in two weeks for the Great Plains Food Bank.
They normally host a food drive, but changed gears due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The rest of the student body got to watch the event virtually, at home or in the classroom.
7th grade math teacher Andrew Eben's got five pies to the face.
"I'll be honest, it was a blast," Eben said. . "It was different than I thought. It was a little more impact than I was expecting, but it was fun. It was for a good cause, and I think the kids really enjoyed it."
