CHS Teams Wins 3rd Place in State 'Find Your Genius' Challenge

Congratulations to Blaine Tewahade, Chris Rolfsmeier, Thomas Kaus and Blake Hinman who placed 3rd in the state in the Find Your Genius Challenge!

 

The “Find Your Genius Challenge” is a state-wide contest over a 7-day period competing through virtual internships.  These students partnered with Goodwill of Nebraska and Symphony Workforce to devise a service or product which helps alleviate the emotional or mental distress young people regularly face. These students developed a website that provided a two-fold solution: 1.) It  focused on educating students to recognize signs of distress not only in themselves but also recognizing it in others. 2.) Once recognized, methods to alleviate stress and/or how to seek help. Students worked with advisors from Goodwill of Nebraska and local mental health professionals. Their work was recognized by Symphony Workforce and earned them the 3rd place award.

Lauren Collins Named USSYP Alternate

Lauren Collins
Congratulations to CHS Senior, Lauren Collins!
Lauren was selected as the Nebraska alternate for the United States Senate Youth Program (USSYP)! The scholarship program is highly competitive. In addition to outstanding leadership abilities and a strong commitment to public service, students rank academically in the top one percent of their state. They continue to excel and develop qualities that are often directed toward public service. As an alternate, should one of the two Nebraska delegates be unable to attend Washington Week, Lauren would become a delegate. Student delegates will visit Capitol Hill, the White House, the Pentagon, the State Department, the Supreme Court and other historic sites in Washington. They will meet with the highest-level officials in the three branches of government. In addition, a $10,000 scholarship is awarded to each delegate.

The United States Senate Youth Program was created “to increase young Americans’ understanding of the interrelationship of the three branches of government, the caliber and responsibilities of federally elected and appointed officials, and the vital importance of democratic decision making not only for America but for people around the world.” USSYP is sponsored by the Senate and fully funded by The Hearst Foundations.

3. From Worry to Winning:
Tools to Help Kids Reclaim Superpowers and Beat Anxiety

You probably don’t need statistics from the American Psychological Association to tell you that anxiety in our kids is on the rise. You see it in your kids, hear about it from friends, or you see it in your classroom. The reason for the increase is likely complex but ground-breaking research continues and eventually will help us find more targeted solutions. Until then, you and your kids need tools to help manage their daily worries so they don’t miss out on the experiences that help them grow and learn. The tips offered in this workbook are designed as a supplement to a support system, not as a replacement for professional care. We recommend families work together with a trained therapist and consistently practice using the tools offered here and in therapy.

See the FULL PDF and workbook from Melrobbins.com HERE!!
