Event Details

Since 2011, USA Sevens has collaborated with the Clark Country School District (CCSD) Office of Community Partnership (Office) to bring the Adopt A Country program (Program) to students living in the Las Vegas Valley. The program pairs the sixteen teams and nations represented in the HSBC Sevens World Series Tournament Las Vegas stop with a local school. Adopt A Country began as an ambassadorship program in an effort to introduce international geography, history, culture, and language into a curriculum in a special hands-on manner. Each school works within district guidelines to implement the classroom curriculum. Additionally, students are invited to participate in a T-shirt contest and a critical thinking essay comparing and contrasting the student’s life to day in the life of a student from the adopted country. Winners of the T-shirt contest have their drawings turned into shirts, and the winners of the essay contest carry the national flag for their team at the Parade of Nations.
