The sixth grade classes from two schools in Meeker County participated in a conservation-themed poster contest sponsored by the Meeker Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD). The posters were judged by the Meeker SWCD Board of Supervisors.
First and second place winners were chosen from each class.
Litchfield’s first place winners were Aiden Berube, Courtney Fischer, Kaitlyn Palmer, Logan Maine and Ryan Beckler. Second place winners were Lesly Arteage, Connor Taber, Grace Hicks, Cyrus Kammermeier and Calvin Jones.
The first place winners from Eden Valley-Watkins were Catera Davis, Ava Blonigen, Brielle Kuechle and Jack Kneip with second place posters created by Payton Schreifels, Chloe Obar, Kaitlyn Mathies and Teya Boyer.
The posters crafted by Catera Davis, Ava Blonigen and Payton Schreifels will move on to Area competition with judging to be done in June.
All schools in Meeker County are invited to conduct a poster contest with their sixth grade students each spring.
