West Jordan High Student Woodworking Project Receives National Award

Sarah with bureau and awardsWest Jordan High’s Sarah Provard loves woodworking and designing unique wood creations. One of her prized works is a handcrafted, music-themed bureau she designed at home last summer and made at school over the past year with the guidance of teacher Rick Minor. The bureau won the People’s Choice Award at the Wasatch Woodworking Consortium competition this spring and now it is being recognized nationally. The project was recently accepted into the prestigious Las Vegas Freshwood Show, which alone is a big accomplishment. When the judging was complete, Sarah, who graduated this year, won first place in the Case Work category and the People’s Choice award. She also received $1750 as a cash prize and is being courted by BYU and Pittsburgh State. Congratulations, Sarah! Best of luck in the future.
