Carbon FFA does well in state competition
Carbon FFA attended State Convention on March 13 - 15 in Logan.
State Convention is an opportunity for students to attend leadership seminars, learn from the success of other chapters and compete.
Carbon had many competitors that worked very hard, and the chapter entered in several categories that Carbon has never competed in. "Teamwork and dedication were essential to our success," said FFA advisor Jacie Pressett.
Carbon competitors competed in the Chapter Records Contest, Creed Speaking, Public Speaking, Agri-Science Fair, the Five Bred Ewe Program and for several scholarships.
Maya Anderson was selected by the Utah Beef Council to serve as a Beef Ambassador. She will serve the council and promote beef at 6 events. She earned a $500 scholarship and travel money.
Vince Edwards was the recipient of the Deep in the Heart Scholarship which is $400. He was nominated by his advisor and selected as an outstanding member among many other applicants.
Kyler Wood did his agri-science fair project, Basic and Acidic properties of soil on the affects of coal dust on plants growing in Carbon County soils. After losing and gaining several partners, he and Shianne Cooper placed third in an extremely competitive category.
Dylan Barker and Vince Edwards earned their State Degrees, the culmination of three years of work.
