Poster Contest Winners Announced!

The Kenai Soil & Water Conservation District is pleased to announce the winners of the annual conservation poster contest. This year’s theme — Where Does Your Water Shed? – challenged students to learn about the special place we live, the Kenai River Watershed, and to convey through artwork ways to take care of the fresh water that we need each day. First place winners in each age category (K-1st, 2nd-3rd, 4th-6th, 7th-9th) 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. All winners will be honored at a joint meeting of the Kenai and Soldotna Chambers of Commerce to be held at noon, Nov. 6, 2013 at the Kenai Visitors Center.  Winners of the state level contest proceed to a national competition sponsored by the National Association of Conservation Districts.

This year’s local contest was co-sponsored by Kenai Watershed Forum, 4-H/Cooperative Extension Service and the Natural Resources Conservation Service Kenai Field Office.
