NEVADA, MO.--- Nevada High School students and staff are competing for the most canned goods. The cross competition keeps students motivated for the schools annual Christmas food drive. Each grade level is collecting one of four different types of canned vegetables. The winning grade will get a "cut card." The students will get a chance to cut in the lunch line the entire week before Christmas break. The student council vice president tells us it's important that students stay active in the community.
"As a school and as a council all together, it shows that we actually care about the community and that we want to be involved in everything that our community has to offer," said Tayten Starlin, Nevada High School Student Council Vice President.
The canned goods will be donated to community outreach to make Christmas baskets for Nevada families in need. The food drive will last until December 13th.
