From left are Dani Terhaar, Sarah Forsmann and Natalie Arnzen. They were the poetry, poster and essay top project winners in an assignment on Columbine in Sarah Remacle’s junior English class. See the winning entries in the article at left.

Winners for the Essay Contest sponsored by Idaho County Farm Bureau are: l-r, Derek Nuxoll, first place, Savanah Prigge, third place, and Rachel Uhlenkott, second place. The contest was open to all 5th grade students in Idaho County using the theme "Celebrating Idaho's Agricultural Heritage." Competition was tough as there were three 5th grade classes and a home schooled student participating in the contest. All three winning students attend Summit Academy, Cottonwood. Dave Goeckner is their teacher. The essays now are sent to the District level which includes Riggins to the Canadian border. (Photo by Jeanne Arnzen)

In the upper photo are the window blinds in the Elementary gym while the lower photo shows Danette Moea’i presenting a $200 check to Dave Snodgrass for the girls basketball program. Funds for both came from the Pee Wee Basketball program over the past 2 years. They also donated $100 to the boys basketball program and purchased 5 new basketballs for the Pee Wee program. Donations were made to the high school programs for their help in coaching the Pee Wees.

The Technology Students of America chapter at Prairie High School is sending 3 students to national competition at Chicago and needs to raise money for the trip. Shown are some of the donated items that are part of a prize drawing. They can be seen at Schlader Photography.
