Each year the Pope Soil and Water Conservation District hosts a poster contest in conjunction with Stewardship Week giving students the opportunity to demonstrate both knowledge and creativity about various conservation topics. This year the fifth and sixth graders of Glacial Hills, Minnewaska, and BBE Elementary were asked to create an artistic yet informative poster centered on this year’s theme of "Healthy Forests-Healthy Communities". With over 300 entries, students will present their knowledge of healthy soils and communities' through each creative masterpiece. The Pope Soil and Water Conservation District board members are impressed with all of the students’ efforts making the task of choosing the winners a difficult one each year. First through third place will be chosen from each school as well as an overall first through third being awarded from the winners for the County.
