At Community Ed’s State Fair Art Prep camp, 38 Edina students from grades K-10 created and entered 145 art projects in the K-12 Competition at the 2022 Minnesota State Fair. Five of the six elementaries had student entries, along with both middle schools, the high school, and other local kids. Heading to the fair? The projects will be on display at the Education Building and can be identified by a small hornet.
