Larissa Inglet, (left), Zachary Cook, and Sandra Koepl 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.

Valentine Fun! Prairie Elementary first graders would like to thank the volunteers that came to school to help them make some very fun Valentine projects. Cole Frei was lucky enough to have Dina (his mom), John (his dad-top photo) and Ken (his grandpa-middle photo) help 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. 

The PHS band and dance team both provided entertainment during the girls district tournament games. The band is shown during the Troy game while the dance team is shown performing at halftime of the Kendrick game.
