Soil, Water student contests announced
There are a variety of fun ways to reinforce the things children learn, including the potential for winning a prize — and Haywood Soil and Water Conservation District is offering students a chance to participate in one of its annual contests.
This year’s theme is “Water…the Cycle of Life.”
Teachers often have their students enter the contests, but if a child’s teacher is not participating, students are welcome to enter the contests on their own (one entry per student).
The contests and eligible grades are:
Poster – open to third-, fourth- and fifth-graders
Essay – open to sixth-graders
PowerPoint – open to sixth-graders
Public Speaking – open to seventh- and eighth-graders
Computer-generated poster – open to ninth-graders
The contest deadline is Friday, Jan. 25. Entries should be submitted ...
