The Willow River LifeSmarts team competes at the National LifeSmarts Competition in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, April 21-24. Team members include: Madi Moen, Nick Kenyon, Julia Peterson (captain), Daniel Eaton and Marissa Mikrot. The team had a full schedule of competitions, with some sight-seeing sprinkled in. Each team was paired with a sister team and Willow River's was the Future Business Leaders of America from North Carolina. One of the first rounds of competition involved working with the other team. Willow River's team was the 13th seed going into the final rounds, losing to the Virginia team (Virginia ended up in second place overall). "Our Willow River team was an incredible representative of not only Willow River, but of Minnesota as well. The team demonstrated excellent sportsmanship and proved to be worthy competitors in a tough competition," says Melissa Johnson, Willow River LifeSmarts advisor.
