071111 back-to-school bash preview C.jpg
Students typically participate in activities and contests during the bash.

The first time Lincoln ACHIEVE presented the Community-Wide Back-to-School Bash, it drew 24 community booths and approximately 2,000 attendees.

By its fourth year in 2010, participation had doubled, with more than 50 booths and almost 4,000 attendees.
