The sixth grade classes from Eden Valley-Watkins and Litchfield schools participated in a conservation-themed poster contest sponsored by the Meeker Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD). The nation-wide theme this year was "One Water." The posters were judged by the Meeker SWCD Board of Supervisors.
First and second place winners were chosen from each class.
The first place winners from Litchfield were Wilson Capistrant, Isabella Copeland, Viola Haas, and Mila Bjorkman. The second place posters were created by Rachel Morkrid, Danielle Krohse, MaKayla Ramirez, and Alexis Cates.
The first place winners from Eden Valley-Watkins were George Landwehr and Elizabeth Notch. The second place posters were created by Kyra Nistler and Ryker Anderson.
Each winner received a cash prize and potted conifer. All 6th graders were also awarded a bare root tree for their efforts.
The poster winners will move on to Area competition with judging to be done on June 6.
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.
