MAYOR ANNOUNCES WINNERS OF ANNUAL WATER CONSERVATION ART CONTEST

Mayor Coleen J. Seng today announced the winners of the annual water conservation busboard contest. Lincoln fifth-graders participated in the art contest, sponsored by the Mayor’s Water Conservation Task Force. The winning entry was submitted by Olivia Eighme from Eastridge Elementary School. Her artwork will be displayed on a StarTran busboard.

“This annual contest is a great way to display the artistic talents of our young people,” said Mayor Seng. “It’s also a great way to introduce them to the idea that we need to be good stewards of our environment and our natural resources. It’s never too early to reinforce good water conservation practices. These young people understand that we need to value and cherish our natural resources in their lifetime and set a good example for the generations to follow.”

Second place was awarded to Cruz Martinez of Hawthorne Elementary, and the third-place award went to Pujaa Rajan of Cavett Elementary. Honorable mention awards were presented to Megan Rook, Hawthorne Elementary; Emalee Henning, Fredstrom Elementary; Zach Kulawik, Morley Elementary; Claire Hempel, Humann Elementary; Sheila Boothe, Blessed Sacrament; Brittney Schuster, Eastridge Elementary; and Elsa Parr, Maxey Elementary.
