On October 10, members from the Springville FFA participated at Snow College for judging competitions. Members of the FFA chapter participated in the following competitions: Agronomy, Floriculture, Horse, Dairy Cattle, Veterinary Science. and Livestock.

There is copious amounts of memorizing, logic, and test taking skills involved in these competitions. These competitions help and encourage members to gain a deeper understanding of agriculture and the different career opportunities available in agriculture. These competitions are extremely beneficial to the agricultural experience.  

FFA members are grateful for all the time and effort our SHS advisors invest into preparing students to participate at this Snow College competition.  A big thank you to the Snow College staff that made this event possible.

Springville High student, Monet Jorgenson (a Junior), will soon have another literary work published.  Her latest publish piece is titled ​"Girl" and it's a dictionary poem. Dictionary poems follow the format of stating a word (the title of the piece) and then giving two or three "definitions", which act as the main body of the poem.

“I don't quite know what inspired me, but the message I was trying to get across was that girls have power. They are forces of nature, not to be messed with,” said Jorgenson.

Her poem will appear in the 2018 Spring Issue #3 of THAT Literary Review, an online literary magazine.

“I intend, in the future, to keep writing. I don't have any specific plans, but I hope to continue writing until the day I die,” said Jorgenson.

​Jorgenson said, “I'd give others the advice to never stop writing. Your work will get rejected, people will fail to see your genius, but you have to keep writing until you find a publisher who sees your work for what it is--Art.”​
