Seminole Ridge SGA Earns Three Awards At State Convention

Kyla Campbell, Ashley Pellicone, Olivia Campbell and Bella Martinez at the SGA convention.

The Seminole Ridge Student Government Association made school history, taking home three awards at the Florida Association of Student Councils (FASC) State Convention at Boca Raton High School.

They were awarded the Silver Medallion Council of the Year award, which recognizes the sum of all projects and meetings of SGA over the year. SGA President Olivia Campbell put together the book that allowed the program to be recognized for this distinction. It was the Seminole Ridge SGA’s first time being recognized as a medallion council.

“Green Week,” which included the Recycle Smart Presentation by Bella Martinez, won second place in the Environmental Concerns category. That was the school’s first ever second place award at states.

Finally, Seminole Ridge received first place in School Spirit for Lip Dub 2019. Student producer and spirit committee chair Ashley Pellicone was there with her committee member Kyla Campbell, who put together the book that led to the award for school spirit. That was the school’s first ever first place recognition.

Ninety-nine schools attended the convention, and more than 70 competed to earn awards in the various categories. Prior to FASC 2019, Seminole Ridge had won only a single third place award in previous trips to the convention.
