Showing their excitement at winning the Arizona Centennial poster contest, the winners jump for joy. The Payson Roundup sponsored the event and Rim Country Museum provided gift certificates as incentive rewards. The editor of the Roundup, Tom Brossart, and Patti Naughton, a museum representative, presented the Julia Randall Elementary School winners with their certificates; Dalton Harold, left, third place; Kate Snyder, center, second place; and Anastasiya Peters, first place.

Arizona history has long been part of the curriculum for Rim Country fourth-grade students. However, this year it was especially exciting because Arizona was preparing to celebrate 100 years of statehood. Special events were featured throughout the state, with much publicity about the “copper chopper,” the pennies for the Capitol dome project, etc. Arizona’s Centennial provided a great opportunity for fourth-graders at Julia Randall Elementary to share what they are learning about their state as they participated in a Centennial Poster Contest held by the Rim Country Museum. The contest topic was “Celebrating Arizona.”
