were the previous county winners that competed in the Idaho Farm Bureau
District 5 Speech contest held at Nezperce High School Sunday, Feb. 12.
The theme was "Looking to the Future of Idaho Agriculture." Zachary, a
sophomore at Kendrick High School and winner in Latah County, placed third
with his speech on a retirement party for the Idaho Secretary of Agriculture
and his work with the farmers and ranchers. Larissa, a sophomore at Nezperce
High School and winner in Lewis County, placed second with her look into
the future with the many ways that the Internet would be helpful, such
as, purchasing farm equipment. Sandra, a home-schooled 10th grader winning
Idaho County's contest, placed first with her winning speech on what the
future is for burning of the Blue Grass fields. Sandra, daughter of Andy
and Michelle Koepl, Nezperce, will represent District 5 at Boise next weekend
in the state competition. Farm Bureau thanks these students for their hard
work in the desire to be better informed on Ag-related topics.

everyone with their craft. It's a special day when parents and grandparents
can come to our school. Joyce Gehring (Laina's mom-bottom photo) also made
a Valentine pin with Mrs. Schumacher's first graders. All of the first
graders enjoyed getting ready for Valentine's Day with these fun crafts.
