In 2011, a fifth grader from French Ford Middle School in Winnemucca won the annual Free Fishing Day Poster Contest. The following year a fifth grader from the same school won the contest again. Fifth graders from the school also won the contest again in 2015 and 2016, each year beating out over 200 other entries from across the state. So it should come as no surprise that this year's winner, fifth grader Alia Novi, is a student at French Ford Middle School. Apparently, those kids from Winnemucca can flat out draw.
