“Where Does Your Water Shed?” Poster Contest

The Kenai Soil & Water Conservation District is happy to announce a poster contest open to students in grades K-12 in Nikiski, Kenai, Soldotna, Sterling, Kasilof and Clam Gulch.  The theme of this local, state, and national contest, “Where Does Your Water Shed?,” gets kids learning and thinking about the special place we live — the Kenai River Watershed –and how to take care of the fresh water that we need each day.  The contest is co-sponsored by Kenai Watershed Forum, 4-H/Cooperative Extension Service and NRCS.  First prize winners in each age category (K-1st, 2nd-3rd, 4th-6th, 7th-9th, 10th-12th) win $25 and the chance to compete in the state-level competition.  Second place in each age group wins $15, and third place wins $10.

Posters are due September 30, 2013 and may be dropped off at any of the following locations:

Kenai Watershed Forum — 44129 Sterling Highway, Soldotna

 4-H/Cooperative Extension Office — 43961 K-Beach Road
