Beck Academy Youth in Government Wins Outstanding Delegation Award
Twenty-four students from Beck Academy recently traveled to Columbia to participate in the Youth in Government Mock Legislature conference. While at the conference, students presented bills that they had written and debated other bills written by students from across the state. This was the school's first year participating in the Youth in Government conference and it was a very successful trip.
The Beck Academy YIG Team earned the prestigious Outstanding Delegation Award. Sixth grader Alexandra Robinson was voted as Outstanding Statesman. Her bill, written along with Lindsay White was selected as one of the Best Written Bills. Eighth grader, Deja Dawkins was also chosen as one of four students from across the state to serve as a presiding committee officer.
