Any idea for a project is welcome; the CCEP wants these projects to be diverse in content to pique the interest of all of the community members of Medford High School!
|Application Deadline: Any suggestion for a project will need prior approval by the CCEP and Headmaster of Medford High School preferably by May 21st.
