Mt.Nebo FFA Triumphed at the Wasatch Back Invitational Competition

On December 7th, a cold Tuesday morning, 13 Juab High School students rolled themselves out of bed to meet in Mr.Burton’s room at 7:00 am. The reason, the FFA Wasatch Back Invitational. The Mt.Nebo chapter had one creed speaker, one floriculture team, and 2 livestock teams competing. Not only to win but to prepare themselves for FFA State competitions that are slowly creeping closer.

      As perusal usual Mr.Burton himself was late. Once he arrived and the search fire clipboards came to a close, everyone loaded the bus. While one or maybe two students studied, the rest of the bus had fun playing music until they reached the Wasatch County Event center.

     The first to be dropped off was Mt.Nebo’s creed speaker of the day. He would compete by reciting FFA Creed by EM Tiffany then answered questions about it.

      Mt.Nebo’s livestock teams competed in Wasatch County Event center’s indoor barn. After taking a general knowledge test, they moved on to ranking different animal classes. Mt.Nebo’s team took 3rd place out of 36 teams. Students Brylee Greenhalgh and Claire Bennett both ranked within the top 15 highest individuals.

      Floriculture also started with their general knowledge test. Once finished, contestants were bused to another building. There FFA members worked through corsage making, live plant and tool ID, and problem solving. Juab High’s team placed 4th out of 27 teams. Juab student Abby Hunt ranked in the top 15 individuals. 

    Mt.Nebo FFA still has many practices, competitions, and activities to come. So wish them all luck.
