Prairie High School art students participated in the University of Idaho’s 25th annual high school art exhibition.  This is a yearly competition for art students across the state.  The theme for this year was “I Am Me”. Students were asked to express that theme as creatively as possible.  35 schools competed in the event, and Prairie was fortunate enough to take home two ribbons.  Faith Uhlenkott, a junior, top photo, took home an honorable mention ribbon for her acrylic painting and Callie Perrin, a freshman, lower photo, also received an honorable mention for her oil painting.  There were many entries and we are excited that PHS was awarded two ribbons.  Click on each photo for a larger view.
