River of Words contest

--art by Mia F

The Water in the West
"Following the lead of Justice Hobbs, who was in our classroom twice to share his passion for water conservation and his preference for documenting his insights in poetry, and studying the work that had been previously published in a River of Words anthology, the children in our class wrote poems and created the artwork submitted toward the end of the Water in the West unit. We first mailed the entries to St. Mary's College in California, and then they were sent back to Colorado for judging. The winners were announced this week." --Gay and Kim, teachers in PGK
