What is Crimson?

After interviewing a variety of students from kindergarten to sixth grade, the overall outcome was clear that our school color is in fact, the true “crimson” or #1 in Figure 1. It was an interesting experiment, given Fairbury Public Schools considers many shades of crimson to be the school color. Although, the majority of kindergarteners were hesitant to pick the wrong color, they each have their own idea of what our school color is. There is an overall agreement #2 was purple and #3 is pinkish. However, fifth and sixth graders chose #1 because #2 is indeed purple, and #3 is Husker Red.
