Greenwood has reason to congratulate itself on the excellent showing made by her public school pupils - in the county exhibit at the fair - and it is claimed that the school exhibit was the best feature of the fair this year. The following awards were given to Greenwood work: Jennie Loft, first premium on history; Mabel Lucas, first on physical geography; Irma Palms, second on botany; Arthur Franckenberg, first on 8th grade composition; Alvin Larson, second on 8th grade composition; Vera Drummond, first on 6th grade composition; Nellie Youngs, second on 6th grade composition; Grace McMahon, first premium on original poem. Miss Walters, who had charge of the school exhibit, sent word that she had kept the best of the work for exhibition at the Buffalo Exposition. She also desires that hereall the best of high school work be saved. Gleaner 9-21-1900
