A|2 SlDNEY HERALD. SUNDAY, MAY l2. 20l9 YOUR NEWS Sidney student honored with award at national tournament V SUBMITTE Sidney High School stu- dent Annika Bennion, 16, poses with her Top Speaker award at the Capitol Debate Club National Championship held in Virginia last weekend. SUBMITTED BY DANIELA BENNION Last weekend was a whirlwind experience for Sidney native An— nika Bennion as she represented the West- ern League at the Cap— itol Debate Club’s an- nual national champi- onships in Virginia. As a complete nov- ice, the first debate taught many lessons: don’t agree with com— petition and don’t worry about hurt- ing their feelings. To add to the intensity, her debate partner could not make it to the tournament, can- celling just 48 hours before competition. If she wanted to partic- ipate, she had to go alone. After a little mo— ment of despair, Bennion decided to debate by herself against teams that had worked together for years. Her coach also encouraged her to enter the experi— enced category, rather than compete with the beginners. There is nothing like learning by doing and by the end of the tournament she had won enough to be- come a quarterfinal- ist and take home the coveted Top Speaker award. ”Debate makes you more confident as a person,” Bennion said. “It helps you think past the surface of an issue.” Bennion is a 16 year-old dual-cred- it student at MSU Billings.

Although it is a national program, there are no federal or state dollars allocated for the organization. Donations and grants are what keep them afloat. Libby Berndt, mar- keting director at Reynold’s, said she doesn’t want people to think the job is over because the new club is operational. “Because the doors are open now, peo- ple think everything is paid for,” she said. “That’s the stress we have, there’s still some money to own on it.” Reynold’s is a regular donor to the club and a thermometer measur- ing donation progress will be located there this summer. The Boys and Girls Club will also be pro- viding a summer food program, with free breakfast and lunches served for kids through age 18, regardless of whether they are club members or not. Break- fast is only served at the clubhouse, while lunch can be found at the club, the Glendive clubhouse (111 West Bell), and a mobile site in the high school parking lot. Other summer activ- ities also include full- day club membership, seven one-Week camps and two overnight camps. Sign—up infor- mation can be found on the website. The safe-keeping of area children has inspired large dona- tion from many com- munity members, in- cluding Tammy and Larry Christensen of SkilledNursing Tri County Implement (over $100,000), Anne and Bud Groskinsky, the Murdoch Trust ($350,000), the Dayton Foundation ($250,000) and numerous other anonymous donors in the six-figure range. “This is something we thought would be a good service to the commu- nity,” Anne Groskinsky said. “It’s local. This is where we live and we wanted to help children in our area.” Tammy Christensen echoed that same thought. “It’s for the kids and they’re the future of our community,” she said. “Larry and I just think it’s so important for our community to have a place for these kids to go.” Donations can be made at the Boys and Girls Club, located at 200 3rd Avenue SE in Sidney, or online at richlandbgcorg.
