HELPING HANDS, a volunteer youth organization, is sponsoring its 32nd Annual 3 on 3 Basketball Tournament to be held in the South Hardin Middle School gym in Hubbard on Saturday, March 18.  

There are separate 8-team GIRLS and BOYS divisions in grades 2-4, 5-6, 7-8, 9-10, 11-12, and Post-high school.  The 2nd-4th, 5th-6th, and 7th-8th divisions will start playing on Saturday morning as close as possible to 8:00 AM, 9th-10th and 11th-12th at 4:00 PM, and Post-high school at 6:36 PM.  Awards will be given to all four places in both of the Championship and Consolation brackets---trophies, T-shirts, medals, or ribbons---depending on the final standing.  The cost is $39.00 for each three person team.

HELPING HANDS is a group of students interested in promoting and improving the communities where we live and having fun doing it.  Decisions for yearly projects are generally made by the High School and Middle School members with participation coming from even the elementary grade levels.  Some projects are annual efforts, some were worked on for several years before completion, and others were suggested and completed in one year.  Some years we submit our projects to one or more youth competitions and have been very successful in those competitions. Helping Hands has completed many projects since 1984.
