Students across the state were invited to  participate in a poster contest. The contest was put on by the Mississippi Pecan Festival to advertise their new attraction which is a stick horse rodeo. Many students submitted their posters, but one fourth grade student from Poplarville was chosen as a winner. Daphne Rohrbacker, from Mrs. Patten's class​,​ was chosen as a winner. Along with the title, she also won four tickets to the Pecan Festival and a $50 gift certificate to the general store. Congratulations Daphne!
