The annual SoDA Day observance focuses attention on the importance of the arts in the lives of South Dakotans and features the Students' Capitol Art Show. More than 120 pieces of art created by children from every legislative district adorn tote bags, one for every legislator, Gov. Dennis Daugaard, Lt. Gov. Matt Michels, and Secretary of State Jason Gant. Three Mitchell students' work will be included.

"Teachers from every South Dakota legislative district assist in this arts advocacy project, showcasing the creativity of our young people and their own teaching skills," according to SoDA program director Shari Kosel. "The artwork will serve as a daily reminder to our legislators that the arts are an integral part of learning and living in South Dakota."
