Ethan's poster was also selected as the 1st place winner in the Area VIII Contest, which consists of 12 Counties. His poster was entered in the NC State Contest and was awarded 3rd place.
Ethan and Emma were both presented with trophies, plaques, monetary awards and certificates for their achievements. Their teachers were also awarded with a monetary gift.
Thank you to all 6th grade students and teachers who participated in the Conservation Poster & Essay Contests held during the fall of 2018. Both contests are designed to supplement the instructions on natural resources as given in the classroom. The intent is to alert students to conservation principles and measures as they relate to each student's life. It is the hope that some of these principles will be absorbed, carried forth in life, and be used by the individual for the betterment of our community.
