Our Ag Communications team placed 1st at our district contest. They will be competing at the State FFA convention in April. The team consists of a news writer (Skye K.), video production (Garrett O.), Opinion Writer (Kathryn P.), and Web designer (Carlie R.). Students attend a mock “news conference” and create their line of communication after attending. The FFA chapter had 15 students compete at the District CDE in Livestock evaluation. Students evaluate cattle, sheep, goats and hogs for desirable traits and place the animals accordingly.Lilian P. sang in the National FFA Chorus. She was among only 85 other members who qualified. While at the Convention she sang at multiple sessions, concerts and other FFA events. Ten students attended National FFA convention in Indianapolis, IN. Students attended sessions, leadership workshops, career development workshops, watched finals in different LSEs, and attended a huge career fair where they could speak with different companies and schools in the ag industry. We also toured the Indianapolis Speedway where the students got to “kiss the bricks”.

On September 23rd the Wilcox-Hildreth FBLA members enjoyed an outing to Country Harvest Pumpkin Patch in Glenvil, NE. This was a fun bonding outing for Members. Everyone enjoyed the corn maze, obstacle course, moon bounce, hill slides, zip lines, homemade ice cream and much more! On the way home we even stopped at the Nielsen’s Kid U-Pick Pumpkin Patch and picked our own pumpkins.
The Wilcox-Hildreth Volleyball girls started their season with a trip to Elwood for the Elwood triangular playing SEM and Elwood. As September rolled in the girls played at Riverside and had a home triangular paying both Alma and Northern Valley. With a few tough losses to start the season we wish the volleyball team good luck tonight in Overton as they take on Overton and Elm Creek!
