Adopt a Team
2017 World Rowing Championships
Field Trip
Registration Form
for Sarasota County Public & Charter Schools


This September, the World Rowing Championships will return to the United States for the first time in 20 years and the 2017 World Rowing Championships, Embracing Our Differences and Benderson Development Company have partnered on a new initiative called “Adopt a Team.”  During the competitions, students from Sarasota County will be afforded the opportunity to attend and be exposed, educated and provided international experiences all while gaining knowledge about the countries participating in the regatta.

An additional educational component of the Adopt a Team initiative is artwork created by more than 2,200 students at 40 schools during the spring of 2017.  The art represents the life and culture of 59 of the countries participating in the 2017 World Rowing Championships.  Embracing Our Differences will display the art in a bill-board size format at the Nathan Benderson Park as they do each spring during its annual Embracing Our Differences Exhibit in downtown Sarasota.

To participate in this free field trip opportunity, schools must complete and submit this registration form. Participation is strictly limited to students, teachers and chaperones who have received an invitation from their school district.

Thank you for your participation in the Adopt a Team initiative which is generously underwritten by the 2017 World Rowing Championships, Benderson Development Company and Embracing Our Differences.
