Moriches, NY - December 8th, 2014 - Students at Moriches Elementary School in the William Floyd School District are trying to become part of a Guinness World Record for the “Largest Collage of Cut-Out Handprints” by submitting 934 handprints (one for each student) to Kids for Peace in the “Great Kindness Challenge.” The current record of 30,006 handprints is held by the Scout Association at Baden-Powell House in London, England.

“We are so happy to participate in the Great Kindness Challenge,” said Deirdre Redding, Assistant Principal, Moriches Elementary School. “Every handprint that our students cut out and decorated is unique and symbolizes them individually with the message and idea that kindness counts at all times.”

After Kids for Peace collects enough handprints from schools nationwide, they will display them at a California hospital in an attempt to set the record.
