The college of Human Ecology, which includes Studies of Human Nutrition, Hospitality Management, and Dietetics, was a perfect location for the first Senior Family and Consumer Science Contest. Located in Justin Hall at the K-State campus, eight teams of two seniors each team gathered for the contest. Participating teams came from Washington county, Barber County, Marshall County, Belleville County, Clay Center, Stafford County, Johnson County and Concordia. Orientation session was held, and the groups prepared an impromptu speech for presentation.
The groups also participated in a scavenger hunt and completed SuperTracker.
Lunch was held and vans were loaded to drive the seniors to two tours. The tours included the Athletes Training Center, and Wheat Innovation. The organizers of the pilot event were: Andrea Feldkamp, Anita DeWeese, Becky Reid, and Erin Petersilie.
At the end of the contest, points awarded were added up and Johnson County won the contest.
