Tyson Eddie and Tracey Young, both sophomores at OHS, participated in the Family, Career and Community Leaders of America national competition in Orlando this summer and won first place in the Illustrated Talk category.
The students performed a skit on the dangers of Shaken Baby Syndrome with an information board containing statistics, symptoms and photos. They also had a specially ordered baby model with a transparent head to show the effects of SBS.
Eddie and Young are students in Family and Consumer Science at the Okolona Vocational Center and members of FCCLA. Club sponsor, Trena Smith, said the students worked diligently on their project and performed well at both the state and national competition.
"They researched information and developed a short dramatization and speech about Shaken Baby Syndrome," Smith said. "After that, they answered questions from a panel of three judges. Note cards were allowed, but they never used them at either competition."
