This month we had Prostart Culinary Arts teams compete at region and state Prostart from Springville, Maple Mountain, Spanish Fork, and Salem Hills High School. Nebo teachers dedicate much time to help prepare their students for competition. The students go above and beyond to create a gourmet meal for a fine dining establishment. Great job with your teams this year!
Maple Mountain FBLA was able to participate in their State Competition earlier this month. These competitors did a great job and represented our district and their school very well!
Eldon Van Orman- 3rd Place in Banking and Financial Systems, 7th in Accounting II, and 8th in Computer Applications. Kimball Call- 9th Place in Impromptu Speaking. These competitors have a shot at the National Competition as well. Great work!
The U.S. Census Bureau has embarked on a nationwide effort to inform everyone living in the United States and five of its territories about the upcoming 2020 Census and to encourage them to respond online, by phone, or by mail.
Everyone counts. The census counts every person living in the U.S. once, only once, and in the right places.
It’s about fair representation. Every 10 years, the results of the census are used to reapportion the House of Representatives, determining how many seats each state gets.
This year Nebo's very own Angela Nederhand received the Utah Broadcasting Teacher of the year award. She took 9 students to the awards on March 6th where she ended up being awarded as well. Angela continues to grow her video broadcasting program at Salem Hills High School. Congratulations Angela! #CTEteachers #UtahCTE

SheTech Explorer Day is a hands-on tech conference is on April 15, 2020, for high school girls ninth through twelfth grade. This day-long event will include hands-on workshops in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). The ultimate goal is to expose girls to technology in a fun atmosphere as well as meet STEM role models to learn more about opportunities in those fields. Girls who attend will have access to internships, receive a SheTech certificate, receive pathway information and become part of a community to help girls have opportunities in STEM.
In February for CTE Month during lunch, students were "Fishing for Careers". Students were made aware of the AWESOME CAREER CHOICES they get to make individually and the possibility of an INTERNSHIP. "They can't just leave it to chance" explains Mr. Black as each kid pulled over a new career pathway during the fishing activity. This activity was a prelude to the Career Fair that will be held on March 25th where students will be able to visit with professionals from around the valley who have been successful in their career choices.
FFA had some students with awesome success. The proficiency award program recognizes students for the skills they have developed through their Supervised Agriculture Experience (where they take what they learn in the classroom and apply it in a real-world setting). In January, 8 of our students were named Area Winners (our version of region). These students then moved on to the state competition which was held February 9.
