Fifth-grader from Idaho Falls Wins Department of Education Card Contest
BOISE, Idaho (KLIX)-An Idaho Falls charter school student's artwork will be featured on the Idaho State Department of Education holiday card this year.
The bright colors, imagination and joy of Idaho’s young students make this contest a highlight of our
year at the State Department of Education,” Superintendent of Public Instruction Sherri Ybarra said in a prepared statement. “It’s
