Three Corner Canyon student guitar-makers this summer won international awards and cash prizes at the Freshwood Student Competition at the Association of Woodworking and Furnishing Suppliers (AWFS) convention. The winners are:
- Sadie Chidester, first place and $1,000, “Featherprint”
- Jacob Rubisch, second place and $500, “Mahogany Gem”
- Porter Thorkelson, honorable mention and $250, “Sun Burst.”
Chidester, Rubisch and Thorkelson are among six students from Corner Canyon, and 19 high school students nationwide, who were selected to compete at Freshwood. The competition was held at the Las Vegas convention in July 2015. The international competition includes high school and college students from the United States and Canada.
