Crystal Stevens and Sarah Mitchell have developed a project from research they completed on childhood obesity in Mississippi.
The two are Family Career and Community Leaders of America/ Early Childhood Education students at the Webster County Career and Technology Center.
The project, titled, “We Heard It Thru the Grapevine,” was conducted with children at WebsterCare Learning Center to teach them the value of grapes as a snack instead of snacks high in sugar.
They presented a 10-minute oral presentation and a storyboard to inform the judges of their project. They received a perfect score of 100 and will represent Mississippi in Orlando, Fla., at the national FCCLA competition in July.
Crystal attends high school at East Webster and Sarah attends Eupora High School. The girls gave their presentation to the Webster Health Services Inc. board of directors at its April meeting and were presented with a donation to fund their trip to the national competition in July.
