Highlights From National Beta Convention 2019
JGS Beta Club attended the National Junior Beta Convention in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. The Convention was held June 15th - 18th at Cox Convention Center in downtown OKC. In addition to attending general sessions and keynote addresses, our Betas competed in 6 events. To compete at Nationals, members had to have placed in the top 3 at the corresponding State Convention. JGS advanced to the National competition in the following events: Service Snapshot, Performing Arts - Solo, Duo, or Trio, Visual Arts - Photography, Visual Arts - Recyclable Art, Visual Arts - Sculpture, and Marketing & Communications.
Every competitor did an awesome job, and we are so proud of our JGS competitors for making it to Nationals! The top 3 in each event from each state is eligible to compete at Nationals, so the competition is tough! The top 10 in each event are recognized at the National level. Our Beta Bulldogs achieved Top 10 - Service Snapshot (the whole club participated in the service project to raise money to help Hadley's Haven; 3 members were selected to give the presentation at the competition); 3rd Place - Sculpture (Mya Laster); and 3rd Place - Marketing & Communications (4-person team: Torie Ralls, Ally Hasty, Miranda Bundren, & Alexandria Keller).
While in OKC, the Betas enjoyed white-water rafting at Riversport, visited Frontier City Amusement Park, and spent an afternoon at the Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum with a guided tour of the Memorial, interactive museum tour, and tested their forensics skills participating in the Forensics STEM Lab. This was a wonderful experience for our Betas - Fun AND Learning! Enjoy our photo collection from OKC 2019!
