River Phillips, a Grangeville Elementary Middle School student, created the poster (right) in the visual arts division of the GEMS PTA Reflections contest. The poster was chosen as a local winner and has been forwarded to district competition in Lewiston. Phillips is the son of Patrick and Reyna Phillips of Grangeville.
GRANGEVILLE How would you make the world a better place? Grangeville students reflected on that as the PTA Reflections theme of “The world would be a better place if …” for the 2014 arts program.
Grangeville Elementary Middle School and high school entries for the annual program numbered 44. Of those, 13 were judged as “tops” and selected to move on to the district competition in Lewiston.
“We will know how these entries fared sometime in early 2015,” said GEMS PTA Reflections volunteer coordinator Genny Lutz. “I appreciate all the entries that come in from our kids when I know they have busy lives.”
