Got a question? Perhaps our Public Service Announcement (PSA) can help you better understand what Festival of eXcellence is all about.  We certainly want to make it clear; we are encouraging, recognizing, and when we can, we will reward Excellence in a very unique way.

Our values, some might see as spiritual.  It is no more spiritual than the values this great country was founded on.  We realize our values are being lost with each generation.  Our ancestors gave and lost, at great sacrifice, so we may live in the manner we are accustom today.  Unfortunately, the teaching of good morals is not being past on intact to the generations after our fathers.  Hard work and sacrifice almost seems like a thing of the past.  We at FOE believe the Ashanti Proverb Sankofa, which means "It is not forbidden to return and 'fetch' it when you forget."  The Festival works to go back in our history and recover the values lost over time causing the erosion of morality.  The FOE works to weave a web of integrity to protect the core values of the Tampa Bay area by teaching youth how to overcome disappointments and adversity by never compromising their pursuit of excellence, their values or their faith.  The FOE works to shape America's future with the presentation of some of the abandoned and forgotten strengths of our past.

Do you want to continue in the way you are headed? Or are you willing to give a little of your time so someone else may be blessed by what you have to offer.  If we all do a little, we can change the environment of Tampa Bay.  If we change the environment, people will change. We can do this with faith.  You may not be able to see it, but with a little faith and a little work, a mountain may be moved.  Don't let the inevitable change continue to dictate what we do with our lives and how we must live them.  Please be a part of FOE and help direct the change.  Each one of us has the ability to be the change we want to see in the world.  We need your help!
