Here are records of some of the children who took part in the 1962 Arts Festival from the Sioux Narrows Satellite News.
Little Miss Fadden was Chairman of the Cookie Guessing Contest. Hand crafted cookies were made by Mrs. Mary Rodegarde. 10 year old Bill Dwyer of New Orleans won the contest.
Miss Adele Dion and Linda Rodegarde conducted the poetry contest.
Gwenith Jones and little brother Evan from the USA entered paper mache sculptures of Robinson Crusoe and Alice with the White Rabbit.
Robert and Olie B. from the Sioux Narrows School won prizes for their art entries and Sherry Kerr won for her poetry.
Mr. "Bus" Sharp of New Orleans brought a 6 foot dugout canoe he made for his young son from a timber washed up on the shore of Sharp's Island. He also displayed wooden trains carved from birch logs and bowls from diamond willow.
