5th-graders' posters win state awards

Artwork by two Baker City elementary school students finished first and second in the Oregon State Elks Association’s annual eye injury prevention poster contest.

Lupita Macias, a fifth-grader in Mrs. Howard’s class at South Baker Intermediate School, placed first in the statewide contest.

Lupita’s poster won first place in the regional competition, and second place in the Baker County competition.

Her classmate, Isabella Nemec, placed second in the statewide poster competition. Isabella’s artwork finished first in the local event and second in the district contest.

Jordan Remien, a fifth-grader in Mrs. Hensley’s class at South Baker, finished third in the local competition, and his poster also was entered in the district event.

The annual poster contest was open to fourth-, fifth- and sixth-graders in Haines, Keating, Baker City and La Grande.

Hal Huntington, the local contest organizers for the Baker Elks Lodge, received 81 posters from five teachers on Feb. 4.
