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 nation-wide theme this year was "Life in the Soil: Dig Deeper." 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 Sophia Ham, Cassie Iliff, Mariah Lanigan and Maya Wuotila. Second place winners were Ella Mahoney, Camron Fuchs, Braeden Theisen and Grace Holmgren.
The first place winners from Eden Valley-Watkins were Jadyn Everett, Chelsea Neuman and Hope Molitor with second place posters created by Coltant Harff, Cambel Hesse and Samantha Troll.
Each winner received a cash prize and potted conifer.
The posters crafted by Jadyn Everett, Coltant Harff and Chelsea Neuman will move on to Area competition with judging to be done on June 19.
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.
