   WOODINVILLE--Amy Cattle, a 6th grade Woodin Elementary School student, and Cameron Rahman, a 6th grade East Ridge Elementary student, were honored on June 16 by city officials for their imaginative artwork, selected by a citizen transportation committee and the City Council for the Gateway Enhancement Project.

   Their artwork, transformed into huge murals, can be seen when entering Woodinville from State Route 522 on the wing walls of the railroad trestle.

   Over 60 artwork designs depicting the theme "Protecting Woodinville's Waterways," were submitted by Northshore elementary school students as part of the Gateway Enhancement Project coordinated by the City.

   Support was provided by the City of Woodinville, Northshore School District, and Burlington Northern-Santa Fe Railroad. AK Media/NW provided materials and the labor to install the murals on the trestle.

   For information about the artwork project, contact John Markuson, City of Woodinville Volunteer Coordinator, at 425-398-9327, ext. 298.
