Like every year, Juab High’s incredible Mt.Nebo FFA Chapter took students to compete at the FFA National convention. The 2022 National FFA Convention was held in Indianapolis from October 24th to 29th. This year Juab High students qualified to compete in Ag Issues, Ag Communication, and agriscience fair.
The Mt.Nebo FFA’s Ag Communications team, KaBree Smith, Madison Leonard, Jackson Hanks, and Samantha Reynolds, did their best. They earned a bronze placing.
The Ag Issues team made it to the semifinals, getting a silver ranking and within the top 16 in the nation. They lost gold in the nation by one point. Juab’s Ag Issues team, consisting of ( Bodie Wright, Jaxten Shepherd, Kandice Green, Morgan Loveless, Liva Topmen, Kaycee woodland, and Sadie Winn,) have worked very hard for this. Every member of their team has put in a lot of effort, memorizing their parts, rehearsing their skit, and preparing for questions on this year’s Ag. issue topic.
The Mt.Nebo Chapter also had success in the Agriscience competitions. Claire Bennett got placed 2nd in Agriscience Fair: Environmental Science Division 1. Team, Jaleigh Burton and Rylan Orion got 2nd highest in Agriscience Fair: Animal science division 2.
Some of Juab’s students earned their American degree, the highest FFA degree a person can earn. Austin Garrett and Allison Wood were able to accept their award in person. Jake Woodland and Sara Winn also earned their award but weren’t able to attend the convention.
Juab’s FFA members have seen great success this year. There is no doubt Mt.Nebo members will continue to grow and succeed.
