In 2018, the Pennsylvania State Senate sponsored a video competition to address underage drinking and drug usage in the Commonwealth. The contest was split between the middle and high school levels. West Forest Secondary School submitted entries for both categories. Our students won Senator Scott Hutchinson’s district which includes Warren, Venango, Butler, and Clarion counties. Additionally, they are in the final 50 submissions for all of Pennsylvania. Senator Hutchinson visited West Forest on April 5th to personally deliver the awards.
Seventh grade was represented by Avah Burke, Aubrey Barnes, Emma McFarland, Madison McFarland, and Kylie Johnson. Meanwhile the high school entry was completed by Travis Swartz, Chris Pedersen, Dominic Grubbs, Kara McWilliams, and Jacob Humes.
Wanted: Cutest Baby and Pet
Do you have or know someone who has a cute baby (under two years old) or a cute pet? FCCLA is sponsoring two separate contests at the annual Elementary Carnival, which will be held Thursday, April 26.
To enter, please send in your picture(s) to the WF High School office by noon on April 26. Please put your name and phone number on the back of the photo and also the name of the baby or pet. If you want your picture back following the contest, mark “please return” on it and you will be able to pick it up in the WF High School office on Monday, April 30.
At the carnival, people can donate money for their favorite baby or pet. The pictures that collect the most money will be declared the winner. The winners will be featured in the Forest Press and receive a gift card to Dollar General. All money collected will be used to benefit the students who are attending the FCCLA National Leadership Conference in Atlanta this June.
