The Fourth Grade students from Prairie Elem. competed in the Idaho History Bee sponsored by the Clearwater Valley School on May 22, 2006.   Kamiah and Craigmont were also there.  Teams study the history of Idaho.  When a team answers a question correctly they earn a point.  The team that earns 44 points first is the winner.   Mr. Wassmuth's team (shown) was tied with C.V at the end of the round.  We started the tie-breaker.  When one team missed a question the other team would become the winner.  We stayed tied with C.V for 18 more questions.  On question #63 we couldn't come up the correct answer so we took the 2nd place trophy home.  We have enjoyed studying Idaho History and are proud of our accomplishments.
