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 Katelyn Ziems from Hawthorne Elementary School. Her artwork will be displayed on a StarTran busboard.

“This annual contest is a terrific way to display the artistic talents of our young people while at the same time, helping to introduce them to the idea that we need to be good stewards of our natural resources and the environment in general,” said Mayor Seng. “Through this effort, our Water Conservation Task Force is reinforcing good water conservation practices for our young people and helping them understand that we need to value and cherish our natural resources in their lifetime. This sets a good example for future generations to follow. It’s a responsibility that we try to reinforce and help pass on to our younger generation.”

Second place was awarded to Tyler Minter of Morley Elementary. Third place winners were Kaitlin Smith of Holmes Elementary and Beth Loos of Hill Elementary. Honorable mention awards were presented to Gwen Plouzek, Holmes Elementary; Peter Masinelli, Morley Elementary; Dylan Guyer, Hill Elementary; Liz Franssen, Lakeview Elementary; Alondra Rodriguez Saenz, Hawthorne Elementary; Katie Rice, Hawthorne Elementary; and Kimberly Kastler, Hawthorne Elementary.
