Performing arts students raise money for conference

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, Wash.-- Performing arts students raise money for conference. Many say children who are involved in extracurricular activities do better in school. Students at Kamiakin High School were raising money for their performing arts program by having a car wash.

They expressed the importance of getting involved and say they need money to help pay for a drama conference in Spokane. Instructors told us drama is a valuable course and helps overall school productivity.

Drama Coach Candy Olsen says "students who are more involved in music and drama and the performing arts tend to score higher on tests. I can tell you that I know that's a fact."

The Kamiakin High School Drama Club has been attending the Inland Northwest Theater Arts Festival for more than 15 years.

We were told that events and programs like drama are good for a students growth and social skills.
