Mayor Chris Beutler today announced the winners of the annual water conservation poster contest. Lincoln fifth-graders participated in the art contest, sponsored by the Mayor's Water Conservation Task Force. The top two entries were submitted by Jalyn Colon, Pyrtle Elementary School, whose artwork will be displayed on a StarTran busboard; and Cole Becker, Morley Elementary School, whose artwork will be displayed on billboards at various Lincoln locations.
"Over the years, this poster contest has helped remind the public that we all have a role to play in water conservation," said Mayor Beutler. "Our Water Conservation Task Force has helped establish and nurture good water conservation practices for our young citizens and together they help promote the value of our natural resources for future generations."
The third-place winner was McKenzie Steiner of Fredstrom Elementary. Honorable mention awards were presented to Amy Ernst, Pyrtle Elementary; Lindsey Ha, Sacred Heart Elementary; Allison Bartz, Ruth Hill Elementary; Sophia Duggan, Sacred Heart Elementary; Riley Struve, Kahoa Elementary; Whitney Reinmiller, Morley Elementary; and McKenzie White, Kahoa Elementary.
