She Started It 

Student Art about Utah Women Making History

This exhibition features winning art from the "She Started It" annual contest hosted by Utah women's history nonprofit Better Days. Students across Utah in grades 4-12 create original art portraying a woman in Utah history who made a difference in their community, and the winning art is beautiful! From grandmothers to teachers to mayors and community organizers, women and girls have always been leaders in Utah. Students who participated in this contest are helping spread that message and learning from inspiring new role models.

This exhibition is presented by Better Days and the Utah Women's History Initiative at the Utah Historical Society. For more information, visit
