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 Ashley Truscott

The Springville FFA Chapter hosted a softball tournament and service project that several local FFA chapters participated in. The chapters that participated were Orem, Pleasant Grove, Maple Mountain, North Summit, Toole, Spanish Fork and Mt. Nebo.

The event started with a service project on the west side of Springville. The participating chapters cleaned up a trail by pulling weeds that hurt the plants around them and wildlife.

The Advisor of the Springville chapter promised that the chapter that collected the most Russian Olives, one of the most popular and unhealthy weeds for the environment, would be able to take first pick of the playing order. All of the chapters were trying their hardest to get the most Russian Olives so they would have a better chance of winning the softball tournament.

When the chapters were done pulling weeds the trail looked so much better and a lot healthier. Getting to know some of the other chapters was fun, they had a lot to say. After the trail had been taken care of it was time to play some ball.

We all met after the service project at the Springville softball fields. Each chapter participated in a double elimination tournament. Swing after swing, and foul after foul, each chapter had fun competing to win. After a long day of fun, service, and laughs Toole was the one who took the trophy home, they earned it.
