Polk County winners at FFA camp June 10-14

Published 6:15pm Wednesday, July 3, 2013

Polk County High School FFA members attended FFA Camp June 10-14 at the North Carolina FFA Center in White Lake, N.C.

Chapter advisors Chauncey Barber and Ashley Gilbert took about 50 students to the NC FFA Center. While at camp, students competed against other NC FFA chapters in recreational activities including swimming, basketball, softball, volleyball, water ball, horseshoes, shuffleboard, checkers and ping-pong.

Students also participated in a talent show, while a devotional, flag raising ceremony and calisthenics were held early each morning and a vespers program was held each evening.

FFA members brought home the “winners banner” from camp, which was won by accumulating the highest points from competing in the events.

“Students look forward to going to FFA camp all school year, because they really enjoy competing in the recreational activities and they take pleasure in getting to meet new FFA members from across the state of North Carolina,” said FFA advisors.
