CCS third graders and staff attend Nebraska Statehood Day in Lincoln

    Chase County Schools’ third grade students and staff traveled to the state capital to attend the Nebraska Statehood Day on March 2.
    The students were honored for their outstanding projects that were on display and judged at the 2017 Nebraska State Fair in Grand Island, said Arlys Cupp, CCS second grade teacher.
    They had individual entries in the areas of art, essays, penmanship, poetry, story boards, brick art, 3-D art, group art, science displays and community service, Cupp continued.
    “They were awarded the K-2 Sweepstakes Trophy for acquiring the most points as a school at the fair,” she said.
    The Sesquicentennial community service project and entries were awarded special recognition and won many awards. Each student was awarded a special medal as well as a certificate.
    Those same projects were also part of an entry by the Nebraska State Fair at the International Association of Fairs and Expositions Convention where the Nebraska State Fair won that contest and was awarded a trophy and special recognition for the new division of competition, Cupp said.
    “Chase County students were also awarded special certificates for this,” she added.
    Wyatt Krausnick, Braxton Chubb, Addison Robinson and Morayah Cupp were awarded medals from the NebraskaLand Foundation and the State Fair for having entries that were chosen as “Showcase Honorees,” Cupp said.
    The students’ projects were on display for the Statehood Celebration as well as displayed in the Rotunda of the Capital on March 3 for the Statehood Award Ceremonies, she said.
