Lydia Keel, a ninth-grade student from Spanish Fork Junior High, won the PTA Reflections Theme Search Contest with her original theme “I Will Change the World By…” for 2021-2022.

Keel’s submission was selected from nearly 100 entries across 24 states and will inspire artists across the nation as they participate in the art program.

As the Reflections Theme Search National contest winner, Keel will receive $100 from the National PTA. The Utah PTA spokesperson stated that they are thrilled that one of our own has won this recognition.

Another honor for Nebo School District is that four out of the five National Finalists came from Spanish Fork Junior High. The three other finalists were: “The Weight of Words,” by Kacie Slade; “Tomorrow is a New Beginning,” by Mekeli Clark; “I Can Help Others By...” by Cambry Wangsgard. (Serve Daily submission.)
