  S.T.O.P (Shade Trees On the Playground) Project
By: Kendra Carter, Flippin FFA Reporter

The Flippin FFA Chapter did a project called "S.T.O.P. (Shade Trees On the Playground)" for the Elementary school. This activity was planned by the FFA’s community development committee in the environmental quality standard. The S.T.O.P. project is expected to help prevent skin cancer by providing shade for kids while spending time outside on the playground.

During the past few weeks, elementary students were asked to come up with a creative tree name, and draw a picture of what they would like their tree to look like. The Agriculture Leadership and Communication class judged the entries and chose an overall winner and two runners-up.

On October 9, FFA Officers Tyler Blasdel, Skylar King, Courtney Martin, Andy Little, Kendra Carter and Jake Flippin, went to the playground to present these trees and their names. Each grade in the elementary school received a tree to plant and take care of. The young students were very excited about the new trees and helping to plant them.

In attendance was Flippin Mayor Forrest Wood and his wife, workers from the forestry service and the Flippin fire department. Their help and support for this project is greatly appreciated.

Flippin FFA members and supporters did a wonderful job organizing this project. It was a wonderful experience and a great way to involve the Elementary in something that will benefit for generations to come.
