From February 8-10th, students from Beta Club went to Myrtle Beach for Beta Con.  They competed in many competitions, representing Chapin High School.  They competed in Math, Language Arts, Agriscience, Social Studies, On-Site Painting Division II, Technology, Living Literature, Quiz Bowl, Sculpture Division I and Photography.

“I thought it was a great experience. I met a lot of new people and bonded with people I already knew,” said Jessica Gilliam, a junior who attended her first Beta Club Conference. Gilliam also placed first in Art Sculpture.   “I loved the energy from the other schools,” she added.

“We had fun overall, but we’ve had more fun other years.”  Lakin Luoma, a senior, said.

There was a controversy this year.  Chapin High School got points deducted from their Living Literature set for having foam that looked like wood.  Wood is not permitted in Living Literature sets. The competition involves re-enacting a scene from a novel or play. Chapin’s scene was from Murder on the Orient Express. The Chapin students at Beta Con were putting the hashtag #TheyDidn’tUseWood on their social media as a protest for getting points taken away.  This has not yet been resolved.

“I have been going to the South Carolina Beta Convention for the past five years, and I’m glad that I was able to meet a lot of people at the competitions, general sessions, and other activities we were part of.  Beta has changed my life, and I’m happy that it will be a big part of how I grow and learn in the future,” said senior, Abby Kibler.

Chapin placed in many of the competitions.
