National Festival of Breads Contest Winners!

posted Apr 4, 2017, 11:55 AM by website team   [ updated Apr 4, 2017, 11:57 AM ]

In November the High School Food Science class toured the Kansas Wheat Commission facility located in Manhattan, KS.  During that trip they observed the test kitchen for the National Festival of Breads contest and learned of the opportunity to enter a youth contest by submitting original recipes.

During December, food science students worked on researching recipes online and creating original recipes with ingredients that they enjoyed.  The process led them through research, planning, testing in the foods lab, as well as drafting, editing, and submitting their original recipes online to the National Festival of Breads in January.  

Just last week we were notified that some of our own Madison Bulldogs are the recipients of distinguished National awards.

Honorable mentions in the Youth Division are:

  • Hannah Luthi - Peppermint Chocolate Muffins

  • Apryl Salendar & Josie Branstetter - Almond Delight Braid

The National Youth Division Winner and Soy Ingredient Winner:

  • Michael Favor - French Vanilla Donuts

All of these students will be formally recognized at the National Festival of Breads Event on June 17 in Manhattan, KS with awards.  Michael will receive a cash award for his top entry.

Congratulations, Hannah, Apryl, and Michael! #kansaswheat #wheat

posted Feb 24, 2017, 6:52 AM by website team

With over 130 applicants, two Madison High School seniors have been selected this week as counselors for the 80th anniversary session of the American Legion Boys State of Leadership Academy. Colton and Chase Shaw were each selected for the coveted counselor positions in the June 4 to June 9th, 2017 session.

Colton Shaw will serve as a City Counselor and Chase will be a Media Counselor for the 2017 session. They will report for training on June 2. We are proud of the positive impact they are bound to have on the young men joining Boys State this year!

Madison's James-Sill-Brown American Legion Post #124 had sponsored these two with a scholarship of $550 to attend the Boys State of Kansas camp last summer. Chase and Colton Shaw are the sons of Kevin and Lynetta Shaw.

Madison Senior Attends Youth Civics Leadership Institute

posted Feb 24, 2017, 6:47 AM by website team   [ updated Feb 24, 2017, 6:47 AM ]

Colton Shaw was selected to attend the Youth Civics Leadership Institute (YCLI) in July of 2016. It was hosted by Representative Barbara Ballard of Kansas House of Representatives and held on the KU Campus at the Robert J. Dole Institute. It was a three-day seminar that brought together future high school seniors across Kansas. They were put into smaller groups that discussed current issues being examined by the state legislature. With the three days, they were also given the opportunity to tour the Capitol Building, and to talk with senators and representatives about the state legislature and the legislative process.
