Star Journal Staff
Rhinelander students fared well in the annual Northwoods Invasive Species Poster Contest this year. Schools representing eight counties submitted a total of 193 posters this year, in spite of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Five students from Mrs. May’s fifth grade classroom at Crescent placed atop all others at their grade level in the ninth annual poster contest. Winning trophies were Addison Bates, first place; Betsy Wesle, second place and Lexie Terzinski won the third place trophy. Alivia Baitinger and Asher Rivord won fourth and fifth place ribbons. Crescent fourth grader Adalyn Strobel was recognized with honorable mention.
Nine students, Clarissa Wilberding, Dominic Stradley, Maddie Ewan, Delaino Zivko, Owen Kurtz, Lace Loduha, Izzy Gilman, Nicole Brunette and Paige Sturzl, from Ms. Bowman’s eighth grade classes at James Williams Middle School earned honorable mention as well.
Eighth graders Izzy Gilman, Adrian Patrone, Paige Sturzl and Kaden Worrall, were recognized as slogan winners.
All students in public, private, and home schools in Wisconsin were welcomed to participate. A panel of judges, with backgrounds in the arts and sciences, determined the winners.
All poster entries are on display in the hallways on the second floor in the Oneida County Courthouse. Pictures of the posters and additional information can be found on the county website.
