I guess you could say I’m a pretty proud uncle. My 9-year-old niece, Makenzie, entered the Rooks County Soil Conservation poster contest in Kansas.
The theme was “Where Does Your Water Shed?” Students like Makenzie needed to draw a picture relating to that theme and they had a week to do it! Earlier this week the winner was announced and drum roll please….she won!
Makenzie is in the fourth grade at Stockton Elementary School in Stockton, Kansas. The contest was open to all of the other elementary schools in the county too.
Is there a contest in your community that you can enter? If there is, be sure to enter it and let everyone know how important water is to you!
Here is her winning art work:
