BFHE In The News
Congratulations to Ridgway and Peyton in 4th grade for winning the 2021 Sticker Design Contest in STEM! Third through fifth grade students have been learning about digital design in class and were invited to enter the contest. The winning design was chosen after votes were cast by 450 students and staff members. There were many fantastic designs, and the Top-5 are shown below. The design chosen by voters was design # 4. As you can see, our students continue to show how talented they are, and I am proud of all the contestants for participating in the challenge. Every student and staff member will be taking home a waterproof, vinyl sticker with the winning design. ~ Mr. Wu
