Mapleton youth wins Arbor Day tree poster contest

Emma Beach, a fourth-grader at Mapleton Elementary, recently won the Sweepstakes Award for the Utah Arbor Day Tree Poster Contest. 

r By Marilyn Mitchell

Every February/March, the Utah Valley South Chapter of the National Music Clubs of America hold a Piano Solo Festival. This group of 45 teachers who teach in the area from Springville to Nephi, adjudicate over 500 students who play two memorized piano solos. The top students are chosen from that group to participate in a competition called Honors Playoffs. This year our honors judge was Dr. Jared Pierce, BYU Keyboard Performance Assistant Professor. He listened to 92 students and chose 20 to play at the Honors Recital on Monday, March 9, at Maple Mountain High School. Each student won a prize of $50. Congratulations to these fabulous students.
