Congrats Color Guard

Sarah Nasson

Our SF teams had another great competition day yesterday at the Utah Color Guard Circuit's state competition at American Fork High School. Our high school team placed 1st in the Scholastic Regional A class (there were 10 teams in our class) for the second time this season. The Spanish Fork elementary team, which is mentored by the high school team, received a high Bronze rating. The elementary teams are not ranked, but instead receive ratings like in concert band and orchestra. 

We have two more regular season competitions at Lone Peak on 4 March, Westlake on 18 March, and then Championships at Copper Hills High School on April 1st. 


Thank you very much for your support!

FFA Competitions and Winners

Spanish Fork FFA competed at Area 5 Contests January 30. These contests are the qualifiers for some of the State competitions and students competed against eight other schools. 

Katelyn Beckstead and Ellie Ash of SFJHS competed in the creed contest. This contest has students memorize a five paragraph creed and recite it to the judges. They also answer questions on their thoughts and feelings of the creed. Katelyn and Ellie both did a great job representing our chapter. Chase Holt competed in the Prepared Public Speaking event and was third place. He wrote a speech on Genetically Modified Organisms and presented it to the judges. He answered questions that the judges had. Chase represented our chapter well and helped to inform people about a hot topic in agriculture right now. Five students were competed in and were the winners in their proficiency areas. The proficiency award recognizes students for their achievements with projects their Supervised Agricultural Experiences or projects done outside of class time.
