This weekend, Anna High School Beta Club traveled to the Texas Senior State Convention at the Gaylord Texan. All of our students worked very hard on their competitions, and Mrs. Gonzalez and Mrs. Bristol are so very proud of them. The following students received 1st-3rd in their competitions, and as a result, they received an invitation to compete at Nationals this summer in Fort Worth. 

State Champion- Campaign Skit

While our candidate for Secretary, Addy Schofield, was not elected for state office, our campaign skit was recognized as the judge favorite from all the skits at state this year. The following individuals met together numerous times to record audio, learn choreography, and prepare our props. This is a huge honor for AHS Beta and we are extremely proud of them! The following individuals are listed in order of appearance. If you would like to watch our skit, please head over to our Facebook page, Anna High School Beta Club. Special thanks to Mrs. Schofield & Addy for coming up with an amazing idea, Mr. Kramen for helping us record, Riley for putting the track together, and Kristine & Cadence for teaching everyone the steps. This was truly a group effort!

3rd Place- Living Literature

In order to place in this competition, students must recreate a scene from a work of literature. Students bring a pre-made set to state, and during their competition slot are given a timed window to assemble their set. Students then pose in costume to create a still-life set for judging. Special thanks to the Gawron Family for giving up their garage for the past few months so that Living Literature could build their set. We would also like to thank the Mixson Family for helping collect boxes in order to build our stone wall.
