Wyoming Students recognized for artwork by Governor Gordon
May 30, 2019
Fourteen Wyoming students from across the state were recognized for their artwork in Cheyenne on May 17th by Governor Gordon. The celebration acknowledged their achievement in art and excellence in interpreting agriculture and natural resource concepts.
Each year Wyoming Agriculture in the Classroom (WAIC) encourages 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th-grade students to submit a hand-drawn bookmark for the program. This year WAIC received over 1500 entries, from students across Wyoming.
Among the student artists recognized were Pyper Humpal, a 4th-grade student in Lori Backen’s class, who was sponsored by the Superior Livestock Auction, and Renae Norris, a 5th-grade student in Kade Meyer’s class, who was sponsored by First Northern Bank.
Both girls attend Moorcroft K-8 school. Their principal is Teresa Brown.
The students’ artwork is published and distributed around the state. If you would like copies of the bookmarks or information about the program, please contact WAIC at http://www.wyaitc.org or at 307-369-1749.
