World Connections Fair - anyone up for getting it going again?

I found this page from 1993, about a World Connections Fair, and it had a lot of interesting ideas for kids. It appears to be defunct, as I couldn't find any web pages devoted to something like it (though I admit to not looking very hard).

The World Connections Fair is an annual creative problem solving program designed to encourage youth, ages 10 to 15, to be actively involved in making the world a better place.

Program Goals
  • To encourage and empower youth to really have an impact in making this world a better place.
  • To promote greater understanding and acceptance between the world's diverse cultures.
  • To promote creative solutions to the world's problems.
  • To promote cooperative creative problem solving and teamwork.
  • To promote computer literacy and the knowledge and use of multimedia technology.
Anyway, there's lots more detail in the original message, so if this sounds interesting, go take a look: World Connections Fair.

And if I was mistaken about it being defunct, I humbly apologize. Please feel free to post a comment with the correct info.
