Blackfoot kindergartner takes home the beef
The Idaho Beef Council (IBC) recently conducted its second annual educational program called "Cattle are Amazing", created for Idaho's K-6 youth. Three groups competed — K-1st, 2nd-3rd and 4th-6th.
Kindergartner Rylee Wolfley from Blackfoot Charter Community Learning Center (BCCLC) took first prize in the K-1st division with a drawn picture of a cow with green teeth, green because "the cow is eating grass!" Rylee told her teacher Jotien Adams.
Rylee received a $100 gift certificate to Toys R Us and Mrs. Adams received a $250 gift certificate to Staples to use towards supplies. Riley Bigler of Mrs. Dodds' BCCLC kindergarten class also won a $25 gift certificate for honorable mention.
A grand prize will be awarded to the overall winner, who will be taken on a field trip to a local cattle ranch.
