Students, parents and friends are invited to attend the 3rd Annual Monopoly Tournament at Oakland Mills High School from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. March 9.

The event is sponsored by the school's "Introduction to Business," "Keyboarding" and "Business Law" classes, which study world economic systems and international business. The Monopoly Marathon uses American and international boards, with a computerized version available as an additional challenge.

The Keyboarding class has compiled a recipe booklet, "Multicultural Monopoly Morsels."

Curried goat, latkes, and rugelach are just a few of the culinary creations that will be served at the international buffet for the Monopoly competitors.

A scavenger hunt based on a panorama display of 1930s historic events, personalities, literature and music will be held in the Business Department. Visitors will be encouraged to play a round of Monopoly. Information: Diane Ferary, (301) 313-6945.
