A Riverton High School student has taken first prize in the "Celebrate the West" regional art competition, sponsored by the Western Governors Foundation. Holden Yorgason's western scene of a horseman crossing a mountain stream was judged best among 300 works of art submitted by artists from the 19 WHA member states and two U.S. territories. Yorgason's uniquely textured work was created from hundreds of fragments of colored glass, fused piece by piece to create the finished image. He wins $1,000.
