Ten Sleep CTE/FFA students hold dinner-auction

TEN SLEEP — For 12 years Ten Sleep’s FFA and CTE students have made and auctioned off pieces to fund educational trips.
This year’s auction will be combined with a soup dinner on Tuesday, March 31 starting at 6 p.m. in the Ten Sleep School cafeteria.
“Each FFA family will make a pot of soup and bring it for the meal,” said Jarred Bower, Ten Sleep FFA advisor. “There should be 12-15 soups. The $5 dinner will include two bowls of soup, crackers, cheese and other toppings.”
The auction gets underway at 7 p.m. with Gary Nash Auction Services as auctioneer.
“The CTE — Career and Technical Education — and FFA groups work together to put on this auction every two years as a fundraiser for our student organizations,” said Jake Zent, sponsor of the Skills USA group. “It takes almost two years to get enough product to offer an auction like this.”
Everything in the auction is a student work, according to Zent. Most all are original with some being refurnished pieces. Zent himself has made several pieces including a blanket chest. Proceeds from Zent’s works will be donated to the Ten Sleep Fire Department.
Among the auction items:
•Kitchen table with benches
•Painted bookshelves
•Industrial style coffee table
•Wooden coffee tables
•Oak gun cabinet
•Cherry blanket chest with hidden gun storage
•Cutting boards
•Metal cutouts
•Meat smoker
•Large hay bale feeder
•TV stand
•Wyoming key chains
•Three-piece entertainment center
•Bunk bed set (mattresses not included)
•Hickory gun cabinet
•Bull elk towel rack
View all the pieces on the auction block at: https://www.facebook.com/groups/TenSleepCTE/ .
The proceeds from the auction will help pay for a career exploration trip that will be taken in mid-April.
“We will spend two or three days visiting a large variety of careers that build upon the skills that students learn here at Ten Sleep High School,” said Zent. “We travel across a couple of states and visit everything from high-end custom woodworking to Adobe.com facilities and almost everything in between.”
Because Ten Sleep is such a small community, Zent feels it is very important to show his students as many different career opportunities as possible.
Said Zent, “With all these wonderful pieces made for the auction we are really hoping for a good turnout to support the kids.”
