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 theme this year was "Watersheds: Our Water, Our Home." 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 Julian Lopez, Brady Bipes, Carli Gabrielson, Isabelle Culbertson and T. J. Christensen. Second place winners were August Ashburn, Kaley Idso, Jada Larson, Aleisha Shoutz and Creighton Huhner.
The first place winners from Eden Valley-Watkins were Kalob Smith, Diana Wirtzfeld and Anna Kramer with second place posters created by Chaslyn Torborg, Kassandra Morin and Josie Huberty.
The posters crafted by Brady Bipes, Isabelle Culbertson and Kalob Smith 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. For information on next year’s contest, please contact the SWCD office at 320.693.7287.
