Mapleton youth wins Arbor Day tree poster contest

Emma Beach, a fourth-grader at Mapleton Elementary, recently won the Sweepstakes Award for the Utah Arbor Day Tree Poster Contest. 

r By Josh EvansrIsaac Evans, a member of the Salem Hills High School FFA Chapter, has been awarded a $1,000 grant from The Agricultural Experience Tracker in order to enhance his Supervised Agricultural Experience, a requirement that all FFA members must complete. An SAE requires FFA members to create and operate an agricultural-related business, work at an agricultural-related business, or conduct an agricultural research experience. Isaac was selected from hundreds of applicants nationwide. AET is also pleased to award the Salem Hills FFA an additional $1,000 to help promote the benefits of an SAE to its members.

Isaac has chosen to raise and sell game birds for his SAE. His main focus is on pheasants. He will use the grant funds to buy eggs, day-old birds, incubation equipment and automatic feeders, as well as grain and mineral supplement. He will also be spending time this spring constructing a flight pen for the birds. He plans on selling the birds to local commercial bird hunting areas. When the funds are all used, he will submit a comprehensive report to the National FFA Organization regarding the progress of the SAE. Upon graduation, Isaac plans on pursuing a degree in wildlife biology at Utah State University.
