Monday announcements

National Student Poet Weston Clark creates digital art with Native artist Jacob Laducer at Turtle Mountain Community School last summer.

Last Saturday
Nine RRVWP site leaders met on Saturday for a series of  productive meetings at NDSU. Our Scholastic team worked on judging panels for the art and writing awards, NWP conference participants shared out on their experiences, and working groups started on new grant proposals. Our new assistant, Maggie Wheeler, will have meeting notes available soon.
