Iowa CAtholic RAdio
Saints Poster Contest

Our students, K-8th grade, have been involved in a poster contest hosted by Iowa Catholic Radio. Students drew a mini poster featuring the Saint of their choice. Then, the posters were sent in for judging. Iowa Catholic Radio selected one from each school from each division, (K-3rd), (4th-6th), and (7th-8th).  

Now is the time to VOTE for overall winners. Please, take a look and vote for those that you want to win a place on Iowa Catholic Radio's folders.

Online finalists from Saint Francis of Assisi are:

Jack Theis, 2nd Grade

Nicole Pederson, 5th Grade

Anna Clark, 8th Grade
