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 TruscottrGreenhands are first-year FFA students. The Greenhand Degree is also the very first award that FFA members are able to earn. In order to earn this award, the students have to join FFA and memorize the FFA Creed. The creed is a five-paragraph statement of beliefs and was written in 1928 by E. M. Tiffany and adopted in 1930 by the National FFA.

FFA members must also learn the history of FFA and be able to recite the FFA motto and mission statement. By becoming a Greenhand, the students are taking the first step and will hopefully strive and continue to work on achieving further awards and advancements.rThis year, we had 30 FFA members earn their FFA Degree. They were awarded with their degree certificate and the bronze Greenhand pin.

During the event, a graduated member, Cally Bradshaw, spoke and encouraged the new members to continue working and achieving in the FFA. Cally had just earned her American FFA Degree at the National FFA Convention. Only 1 percent of FFA membership earn the American FFA Degree, and Cally was able to encourage the new members that they have the ability to earn this degree if they decide now that they want to.
