Extracurricular Activities

I am involved in many after-school activities. Some take all year, and some are only for a few months. Either way I am in a lot.

 

* Theater: Spring Play 2009 - Hospital (small character)

Spring Play 2010 - Cinnamon Porch (main character)

Fall Musical 2010 - Hotel Minnesota (main character)

 

* I have also been involved in Anita's Conservatory of Dance in Lamberton, MN since I was 4 years old. I have been tumbling, ballet, and tap classes, and I am currently taking jazz classes. The classes last from September to May, one day a week for 45 min. and there is a final performance in May.

 

 

 

 

* In 2010 I was involved in Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA). I wrote a paper in the Laws of Life category about my first (and last) experience flying in a cheerleading stunt; the law I associated the experience with was 'Fear', and how to cope with it. I received a bronze award at State.

 

 

 

 

* I have been involved in our Speech program since 2008. In 2008 I was in the category of Humorous and read a speech called "Aunt Amanda's First Basketball Game". In 2009 I switched to the Creative Expressions category where I get to write my own speech. That year I wrote a speech entitled "The End of it All" having to do with the day that my family dropped my brother off at college for the first time. In 2010 I was in the Creative Expressions category and I wrote a poem entitled "What If?" having to do with the questions you ask yourself during everyday situations, and what could possibly happen.

 

 

 

 

 

* I have been involved in 4-H since 2004. In 2006, 2007, and 2008 I held the Secretary position for our club. In 2009 I held the Secretary, Reporter, and Treasurer positions. In 2010 I held both the Secretary and Reporter positions. Currently I am President of our club. I have won a trip to the Minnesota State Fair for 4-H every year since 2007. In 2008 I brought my Science Fair project and received the grand award at State. Every year at the Redwood County Fair I have received a purple ribbon for Flower Gardening. I have won many awards at the County Level for my projects.
