The Alaska All State Art Competition results came out on April 18th this year, and two Unalaska City School students won awards for their work!

Sasha Rankin won 2nd place in the Multiculural Art category with her painting “How Far I’ll Go,” and Gianna Villafuerte won 3rd place in the Drawing category with a charcoal drawing entitled “What I’ll Do Tomorrow.”

The Unalaska City High School Band traveled to Anchorage last weekend to attend the Aurora Regional Music Festival at Grace Christian School. Despite some very tough competition, the band won the large ensemble category of adjudications for the fifth consecutive year in a row under director Kerry McNamara.  

The event started on Thursday with an opening concert featuring various bands and choirs from the region. Led by McNamara, the UCSD Band played Bohemian Rhapsody.

Last Saturday at 1pm in the PCR gym, the City of Unalaska Department of Parks Culture and Recreation and the UCSD Native Youth Olympics team held their first ever community Native Youth Olympics (NYO) meet, inviting Unalaskans to join in the competition.



The Unalaska Parks, Culture and Recreation teamed up with the Ballyhoo Lions Club for a fantastic Saturday filled with Easter cheer starting at 8am.

The Lions Club started the day off with a delicious pancake and egg breakfast as well as a “split the pot” raffle and face painting for the young ones.

The UCSD Business Professionals of America offered to help with set-up, cooking and cleaning for the event, and Lions Club President John Conwell was grateful for all of their help.

Conwell was unsure how many attended the breakfast but said the turnout was terrific.
