The National Jr. Beta Convention was scheduled for last weekend in Fort Worth, Texas. Instead, the students who qualified for the national convention participated in a virtual convention. AHN’s Jr. Beta Club entered the following competitions:
• Rising 8th-grader and National Jr. Beta presidential candidate Cameron P. submitted her speech as well as a question/response and a skit. She also created an Instagram page to help her campaign with students from all across the country.
• Marketing and Communications – Five rising 9th-graders created a program called Kindness in Development or KinD. The point-based app enhances character in the school community by motivating students to perform good deeds.
• Solo Performance – Reese E. submitted a dance performance.
• Quiz Bowl – Three rising 9th-graders and one rising 8th-grader competed in the Quiz Bowl by completing a test online.
The results will be announced in July!
