In the “Get Green” poster competition, grade school students in Los Alamos County showed off their artistic ability and understanding of sustainability.
The resulting entries provide insight into why preserving our environment is so important, and what actions we can all take to help create a more sustainable community.
The Environmental Sustainability Board was given the difficult task of determining the four best entries.
After careful consideration, entries by the following four students were selected:
- Titus De Jong, first grade student from Canyoncito Montessori School
- Lydia Kenamond, fourth grade student from Mountain Elementary School
- Laura Brady, fourth grade student from Mountain Elementary School
- Maddie Ovaska, fourth grade student from Mountain Elementary School
In order to increase community awareness of sustainability these winning entries will be posted on the side of a trash truck for the next few months.
Also, all entries will be posted in the Mesa Public Library Youth Art Gallery throughout June.
Along with having their art featured on the side of a trash truck, each of the four winners also received $40 in Los Alamos County Chamber Checks that can be used at local businesses.
The Get Green Poster Competition is sponsored by Los Alamos County and the Los Alamos Chamber of Commerce.
