Four students from Sauk Rapids-Rice High School participated in the section 8AA visual arts competition. They are (from left to right) Tyler Speicher, Samantha Mastey, Kathryn Winzenbur and Farwah Tariq. This is the first year for this competition. Despite the lack of a curricular art program at SRR, the high school sponsored a group of students. Joanie Hauck has been the advisor for the volunteer art club and students have been thrilled to take part in the club. The competition was held April 25 at Alexandria High School. SRR was one of eight schools competing. Five pieces from SRRHS students were entered in the competition. Tyler Speicher, Samantha Mastey, Kathryn Winzenbur, Farwah Tariq and Sidney Hauck were excited to have their artwork in the competition. Sauk Rapids-Rice High School will add art back into the curriculum at the high school level, which will hopefully grow the number of participants in this competition next year.
