Both students and staff at Scott County High School greatly value the traditions of the school, with one of the most popular and competitive being the annual canned food drive. Each year, the FFA hosts a food drive to collect donations for the Amen House. Last year’s drive yielded astounding results, with over 30,800 pounds of food donated. In the true SCHS spirit, the school is aiming to achieve an even better record this year!

This year’s theme is the Hunger Games, inspired by Suzanne Collin’s popular book series. The school has broken the different departments into “districts,” with two staff “tributes” that serve as representatives for their district. Students act as the sponsors for their tribute, and the top two sponsors  will receive a special award at the canned food drive assembly that will be held November 20th, 2018. The district that receives the most canned food donations will be declared the victor of the 2018 Hunger Games.

So, gather your food and prepare to donate.  Items can be sent in with any SCHS student, or donations to the canned food drive can also be delivered to the front office of the school.  So rally your team, and make plans to help the community and may the odds be ever in your favor!

    I like the idea of the canned food drive because it helps the community on serving for people in need of food or any necessities, and people should highly be appreciated for donating.

    I love the ffa and I’m so happy to be apart of it! So proud of our school for working together to bring in so many cans to help the community.
