June 11 through 15, 36 members of the Polk County High School FFA Chapter participated in FFA Camp at White Lake, N.C.
The chapter had three teams: Blue, Silver and White. The Blue team finished tied for first with Cuthberson High School and brought home the coveted FFA Banner, while the Silver and White teams finished second and third, respectively.
This was the second year in a row that Polk FFA won the banner; Polk has won it five out of the last seven years. More than 15 schools throughout North Carolina participated.
The camping program consisted of character building, leadership and recreational activities. Each day started with students taking part in devotional, flag-raising ceremonies and calisthenics. Students then attended leadership sessions and participated in competitive events including water sports (swimming, canoeing and water ball), basketball, volleyball, softball, horseshoes, shuffleboard, checkers and table tennis.
All activities were based on a point system and the team with the most points at the end of the week was declared the winner.
