Springville High students attended and competed at the Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA) State Conference at the Davis Convention Center in Layton on Thursday and Friday, March 19 and 20. Three students out of the seven who attended placed in their respective competitions:
Each year, our SHS Key Club carries out four community service projects for the city of Springville. For first quarter, the key club organizes and hosts a 5k to help raise money for the Springville City's Sub-for-Santa efforts.
Second quarter, they arrange a food drive and collect nonperishable goods from around the community as well as shop for sub-for-Santa families.
On Tuesday, March 17, five Springville High Senior girls competed in the State ProStart Culinary Arts Competition. Springville placed first in state at will be advancing to the national competition. They went head to head against nine other top teams in the state including Cedar City, Springville, Provo, Westlake, Tooele, West, Murray, Clearfield, Bonneville, and Northridge High Schools. Our students practiced over a hundred times, sacrificing their free time, weekends, and holidays to prepare for the ProStart culinary competition.
On Friday, March 13, Springville High School held one of its older traditions--the bridge building contest. Although it might not be the most popular tradition at Springville, it has been held every year for 40 years! It is part of our school more than most would think.
On Friday, many students participated in the contest during 3rd and 4th period. Most participated for the incentive of extra credit in chemistry. Either way, the turnout was impressive. The student made bridges filled the tables in Mr. Haderlie’s lab.
