You can name three of the Wild and Scenic Rivers in the State of Idaho, but can you name more???”  That was the question given by Mr. Wassmuth that clinched the win at the Idaho History Bee team last Wednesday for Mrs. Schu’s 4th grade class.  Prairie team 1 was able to name six rivers and Prairie team 2 was named five as they were competing against each Mr. Wassmuth’s class for 1st and 2nd place in a very tense contest.  Clearwater Valley had already finished 3rd in what turned out to be a very close contest with Highland, Nez Perce, and two Kamiah teams close behind.  Mr. Wassmuth and Mrs. Schu’ would like to thank Denise Poxleitner, Dorothy Nuxoll, Marlene Forsmann, and Greg Deiss for helping at the event.  We would also like to thank Mr. Jeff Martin and the 8th grade class for creating the slideshow that was used during the bee.  It was an outstanding morning of Idaho History!
