National Beta State Convention gives students the opportunity to strengthen their academic and leadership skills, showcase their talents and artistic abilities, and interact with other Elementary Betas from Louisiana, as well as the opportunity to compete in various academic, STEM-based, virtual, and performing arts competitions. This year, State Convention was offered as a hybrid event. This gave students the opportunity to compete either virtually or onsite at the Cajundome Arena & Convention Center in Lafayette, Louisiana. These victories at the state level provide an opportunity to compete at the national level. National Convention will be held at the Gaylord Opryland Resort in Nashville, Tennessee during the summer of 2022. Copper Mill thanks its dedicated Beta faculty sponsors Amber Gonzalez, Karen Jones, and Jaime Knight.
With more than 500,000 active members and 8,750 clubs nationally and internationally, National Beta has become the nation’s largest independent, non-profit, educational youth organization. National Beta promotes the ideals of academic achievement, character, and service and leadership among elementary and secondary school students.
