State Convention

The results from State are in! The Chapter had a demonstration team go down, and they did a great job. The team finished 3rd in the State, and earned a Silver Award with their demonstration of “From Cow to Cup.” The middle school also had a State qualifying team with their Green-hand Conduct of Meeting. They also finished 4th in State with a Silver Award. A big congratulations go out to both teams, good job you guys! The Chapter also had two juniors earn their Outstanding Junior Awards and had four seniors earn their State Degrees. The Chapter’s delegates were Claire Zahm and James Brown. Those two helped in electing the new State officer team. Overall, State Convention was a success for the Chapter, and everyone is looking forward to next year.
