Fair Results

School projects on
display at Central Montana Fair

How do you turn trash from the playground into art? Graffiti is often spoken about with distain, but can graffiti be done legally and beautify a canvas or a grain bin? Can you make a quilt out of the history of Montana? Stop upstairs in the Ag Building this week during the Central Montana Fair to find out.
The projects were created by students from Ayers, Deerfield, King and Spring Creek colonies, and those in Denton, Grass Range, Moore, Roy, Winifred and Winnett schools. Grade K-8 students submitted 529 projects, while ninth-12th grade students submitted 93.
The projects are displayed by class and age group, rather than by school. Each school has their own color-coded tags to make it easier to find the school you are especially interested in.
Rural Schools: Ayers-Pink, Deerfield-Light Blue, King Colony-Gold, Spring Creek Colony-Gray.
Class “C” Schools: Denton-Purple, Grass Range-Blue, Moore-Green, Roy-Orange, Winnett-White, Winifred-Red.
Exhibits will be open for viewing from July 27 to July 30 in the upstairs of the Ag Building. Viewing times are 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., Wednesday through Friday, and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday.
