Prairieland Art Contest Champs
Congratulations to all the art students that participated and received awards in the Prairieland art contest!
This year the contest was held digitally with West Prairie acting as the host school. Each of the fourteen Prairieland school entered work into the eighteen different categories. The work was judged by three Western Illinois Art Professors.
