Granite School District students lent their voices about Utah’s air quality issues in the form of art, literature, and video projects during the Students Who Care about Air Anti-Idling Competition.
The contest was initiated by state Rep. Patrice Arent, who was inspired by Luke Parker – a Upland Terrace Elementary student who curbed idling by waving a sign at drivers during drop off/pick up times.
Out of hundreds of submissions, a panel selected nineteen winners to receive cash prizes and display their projects at the Utah State Capitol. Thirteen of the nineteen winning entries came from Granite District students.
