This semester the Coosa County Soil and Water Conservation District sponsored a poster and essay contest. The theme was “Watersheds: One Water.” Students researched watersheds and then created posters and essays to explain their interpretation of how watersheds provide “one water” to living organisms. The students were extremely creative.
Mrs. Compher’s third grade students participated in the poster contest, as well as the majority of the science students in Mrs. Thompson’s seventh and eighth grade classes and Mr. Mitchell’s and Mrs. White’s ninth through twelfth grade classes. Mrs. Laureli Lee’s ninth and eleventh grade English classes participated in the essay contest. All participants were given pencils, pens, bookmarks, and candy. The first, second and third place winners in each grade were given a ribbon and money: first place essay $100, second place essay $75, third place essay $50, first place poster $50, second place poster $30, and third place poster $20. We appreciate Mrs. Janice Kilgore at the Conservation District Office for all of her hard work in organizing the competition. Thank you to Coosa County schools science coach, Mrs. Shelley Wood, for coordinating the essay and poster contest between Mrs. Kilgore and our teachers and students.
