Bowling Green Elementary was proud to send five students to the National Junior Beta Convention in Oklahoma City this year. While enjoying a bit of the culture of the host city, these young men competed in five events; Living Literature, Woodworking, Marketing and Communications, Apparel Design, and Service Learning Showcase.
Elijah Parker, Elijah Rohm, and Amarjay Childs designed the Growing Kind Hearts program to enter in the Marketing and Communications competition. This positive behavior support program allows students to earn seeds for demonstrating appropriate behaviors. These seeds would then be planted in a community garden to help those in need. This team won a fourth place award for their presentation and program.
The Marketing and Communications team was joined by James Scott and Daniel Busic for the Service Learning Showcase event. This competition allows Betas to highlight their service projects for the year. With a focus on the Have a Heart campaign to help the area homeless population, this presentation offered insight into the service projects that the BGE Beta Club performed to help their school and local community. The students were proud to receive a third place award for their service.
