8 Wonders of Sterling

The fifth graders of Sterling Grade School did a class project to select the 8 Wonders of Sterling!  Teacher Jill Britton and district librarian Amy Brownlee designed the project.  Groups of students focused on the 8 rural culture elements of Sterling.  Students interviewed community members, took digital photos, scanned images and created a narrated slide show that featured three candidates for each category.  They presented the slide show to the K-6 students and staff of sterling Grade School and invited them to vote.

Congratulations to the winners!
