The last few months, National Beta members from Winona Secondary have been working hard to prepare their entries for the National Beta Convention. In June, they were able to celebrate that hard work when Muno Singh was announced as the 2nd place winner in the National Beta Club Poetry Division I competition at the National Beta Convention in June. The convention was held in Orlando, FL as a hybrid event.
Other participants included Murry Catherine Alderman, Bailey Holly, Nate Henson, and Rhianna Drake. Students originally competed and received awards during their Virtual State Convention held in March. Their victories at the state level provided an opportunity to compete at the national level. The National Convention, held in Orlando, FL, provided all students the opportunity to compete at their comfort level, virtually or on-site. Over 13,000 Junior Beta (grades 4-8) and Senior Beta (grades 9-12) students were able to represent their schools in the first National Beta Hybrid Convention.
With more than 500,000 active members and 8,750 clubs nationally and internationally, National Beta has become the nation’s largest independent, non-profit, educational youth organization. National Beta promotes the ideals of academic achievement, character, service and leadership among elementary and secondary school students. National Junior Beta includes grades 4-8 and National Senior Beta includes grades 9-12. Visit betaclub.org for more information.
