"At Kenmoor Elementary School in Prince Georges County, Maryland on May 27, 2011 Ms. Buck's fourth grade talented and gifted class participated in an Asian cultural showcase. The class' country choice was India. They used the USYCA donated cricket set to display cricket as the national sport in India. Representatives from the class talked about what cricket is about, and the students even displayed cricket so people can see an example of what it looked like and to how play it. Another reason that the class displayed cricket was to inspire fellow students to play the sport as they grow up.
One student was quoted as saying. 'It really inspired me to want to try to play the sport.' Some students said that they would want to try cricket when they grow up. It was a good idea to use this as a display because it excited and informed people. In addition, because the class had a lot of people come through the display, it provided a lot of exposure to the sport within the school. This author personally enjoys cricket and thinks everyone should try the sport because they will fall in love with it."
