With the start of the new year, the Elmwood FFA chapter found it necessary to cancel its annual toy show due to inclement weather. In the 20 years of the show, this was only the second time the show was canceled.
Seven of the chapter's officers are working diligently to prepare the officer book of their respective position for the fast approaching Regional FFA evaluation. Taylor Barndt and Makayla Mohre have been putting in many hours to prep the chapter's secretary book. Taking on the job of preparing the chapter's treasurer book is Morgan Huff and Marisa Ayala. The final officer book to be submitted will be the chapter's scrapbook and heading up that task is Meagan Wise, Ashley Veryser and Angelique Franks.
In addition to the officer books being evaluated, several chapter members will have their State and American FFA degree applications evaluated.

Though many students graduate high school without winning any significant award, four Eastwood High School Students collected a box full of plaques and awards at the recent National Western Stock Show held in Denver.
Kirsten Ameling, Hannah Frobose, Lane Kemner and Logan Browne represented Ohio after winning the state fair event.
"That contest is so well respected across the U.S., particularly by the collegiate teams that look at the talent for their recruitment," said coach Dan Frobose. "I'm very proud of all four of them, you don't get that far without a lot of hard work and being very intelligent."
All four have received multiple scholarship offers, even prior to this contest. With their outstanding performance in Denver those offers will continue to flow.
For those unfamiliar with the format of livestock judging, a professional judge first views the animals, four in each animal species, and ranks them.
When the students view those same animals, they are awarded points based on how well they match the placements of the judge.
