With over 30 different clubs at Lehi High School, the upcoming club competition season is sure to be full of opportunities for LHS students to show off their talent and make Lehi proud. Lehi clubs will be competing on regional and state levels in the upcoming months, and we wish them luck in their endeavors.

SkillsUSA is the largest club at Lehi High School and for good reason. The Lehi chapter of SkillsUSA is ranked one of the top teams in the nation, with Lehi often bringing home more than 50% of the gold medals awarded. Lehi’s SkillsUSA club is working hard to prepare for state competition in March, hoping to bring home as many gold medals as possible.
Another popular club is the FFA (Future Farmers of America). This is a club where students learn more about farming and agriculture and the important role they play in society. Club members can compete in events like science-fair projects, horse judging and parliamentary procedure. The Lehi FFA is scheduled to compete at the Utah FFA State Convention March 9-11.
No matter what club students participate in, they learn valuable skills and enjoy their time participating. Students are encouraged to join a club at LHS and get involved, adding an unforgettable element to their high school experience.
