— With the theme of “Let Your Imagination Fly,” six Grangeville students’ work were tops at the regional level in Lewiston.

Grangeville Elementary School second graders Kinzley Adams, Hallie Crowl and Laura Nelson; third grader Tylee Heitala; fourth grader Nichole Spets; and Grangeville High School sophomore Hailey Russell all submitted entries locally that went on to regionals. The arts projects will now be forwarded to the state level, Boise, for the next leg of the competition.

“We’re proud of our students for their imagination and creativity,” said volunteer Amy Robinson who has worked with the GEMS PTA for the past several years.

Projects are in the following categories:

•Adams (primary division): Film

•Crowl (primary) and Spets (intermediate): Visual Arts

•Nelson (primary) and Hietala (intermediate): Literature

•Russell (high school): Photography and Dance

Students will be honored at a PTA event this spring.

The PTA Reflections week at GEMS is held in conjunction with the Family Read Week event. Students’ work is showcased and parents and community members are able to view projects prior to them being judged locally. From these, several are chosen as winners to go on to regional competition in Lewiston.
