Oracle School District’s PTO and Art Department worked together to explore Oracle’s cattle ranching heritage by creating a Rodeo Art Picture.  Students worked in Art class for several weeks.  The young ones were called Colts, tenderfoots and Cowpokes (grades K – 4) and the older ones (grades 5-8) were called the Wranglers and Top Hands.  Local Oracle artists and SaddleBrooke artists were generous with their time and selected the winners and even added comments of encouragement to the other students.   Generous prizes were given to first, second and third place winners.  And there was a Grand Prize winner from the whole school by the SaddleBrooke Art Council. 

7/8 Cow Hands: 1st-John Harris,2nd-Keefer Gagnon, 3rd-Julia Tellez

5/6 Wranglers: 1st Mabel Looby,2nd-Wyatt Booth,3rd Kayla Parker

3/4 Cow pokes: 1st Chris Johnson,2nd-Jesus Burruel,3rd Kayla Peck
