National Beta Club members from Lick Creek School are celebrating their recent participation in the Illinois Junior Virtual State Convention. National Beta promotes the ideals of academic achievement, character, service and leadership among elementary and secondary students.
The following students were announced as winners in the state competitions:
Audrey Hileman: Fiber Arts 2nd
Clayton Smith: Color Photography 3rd
Kaylina Willey: Digital Art 2nd
Lydia Coleson: Speech 3rd
Jackson Carter: 6th Grade Science 2nd

Typically, the Beta State Convention brings together students in Springfield from across the state to compete in a variety of competitions ranging from academic and STEM-based to visual and performing arts. Due to Covid and health/safety concerns, members took online tests and prepared submissions for the virtual convention. Their victories at the state level provide the opportunity to advance to the National Convention at the Swan and Dolphin Resort at Walt Disney World in June.
