Cedarhurst Elementary Students Dominate in State Art and Essay Contest
Three students from Burien’s Cedarhurst Elementary School were Top 10 finalists in the Bridging Futures competition sponsored by the Washington Department of Transportation.
Original art by students Axel Oxholm, Lily May, and Joshua Voyvodich showed “innovative ways to consider the needs of wildlife when designing highways, especially I-90 in the Snoqualmie Pass area,” according to an announcement.
The three are in Kevin Plough’s third/fourth grade class at Cedarhurst.
Two winning entries will be displayed on billboards along I-90 this summer. The classrooms of the two winning students will receive $200 to purchase supplies.
All top 10 entries will be framed and displayed in business along the I-90 corridor in a traveling roadshow.
