Sustainable scholarships awarded

On Earth Day 2010, Rio announced a sustainable scholarship competition, Art to the 3rd Power. Students had an opportunity to submit a creative piece that incorporated the 3R’s of Sustainability. We had more than 25 entries, which included poems, creative writing pieces, media entries and short stories. On Oct. 21, three winners were announced. The first place award went to Larry Marrs, who received a $400 scholarship. The $250 second-place award went to Shanna Slaughter, and the $150 third-place award went to Becky Beesley. The winning entries were creative and well written! All entries can be viewed here.
