Creston FFA partnered with Deena Bevins’s sixth-grade language arts class to write essays regarding hunting safety.
Bevins worked with the students on the principles of language arts and the FFA’s Environmental Issues Committee read the essays. Two student essays were selected as the most creative and thorough in covering the topic of hunting safety.
The two award recipients of the essay contest were Brittany Linch and Hunter Fry; each student received a blaze orange hunting vest as the winning prize. Awards were presented at a special hunting safety program coordinated by the Creston FFA Chapter.
Corey Carlton, Union County game warden, was guest speaker. He covered gun and hunting safety rules.
