MAYOR ANNOUNCES WINNERS OF ANNUAL WATER CONSERVATION ART CONTEST

Mayor Chris Beutler 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 Jazmyn Coleman from Hawthorne Elementary School. Her artwork will be displayed on two StarTran busboards for two months and on a billboard for one year.

“This contest is one of the ways the Water Conservation Task Force educates the community about the importance of protecting our natural resources,” said Mayor Beutler. “Through this art project, the students learn what they can do to conserve water, lessons we hope they will share with the rest of their families. The busboards and billboard remind the public that we all have a role to play in water conservation.”

Second place was awarded to Jacob Hotovy, who is home schooled. The third-place winner was Morgan Swope of Morley Elementary. Honorable mention awards were presented to Dominic Nguyen, Hawthorne Elementary; Erik Pawlowski, Cavett Elementary; Tierra Beard, Kahoa Elementary; Travis Henninger, Holmes Elementary; Jeff Gabell, North American Martyrs Catholic School; Trenton Rohde, Cavett Elementary; and Austin Bretting, North American Martyrs Catholic School.
