CCS students perform well at state fair education contests
Results are in from the Education Department activities during the 2019 Nebraska State Fair.
Local organizer for Chase County students was Arlys Cupp, who helped students enter their work. CCS students were entered in 18 of the 36 events including computer graphics, penmanship and poetry.
Students who had completed grades K-12 by spring 2019 could enter the contests, and did not need to qualify at the county level to enter.
For the sweepstakes contest, students were awarded points for all static entries and for all live competitions in which they competed.
In the elementary division, Chase County was awarded first place.
In the elementary level (K-5), Hayden Worth placed 3rd, Camden Kunnemann placed 4th, Sawyer Sauder placed 5th and Ethan Hanna placed 6th. All of them received trophies, which are on display at Chase County Schools.
In addition to his trophy, Worth also received a $50 scholarship.
In the high school division (9-12), Morayah Cupp took first place. Cupp received a trophy as well as a $150 scholarship.
Scholarships will be paid to the college of the student’s choice after they have graduated from high school and enrolled in college.
Three schools in each division were also awarded trophies.
