April 27, 2016

WORLAND — The Washakie County Conservation District encourages you to think about your personal responsibility to be a good steward of the natural resources, including the roles trees play in our resources, in response to its annual Stewardship Week celebration.

The National Association of Conservation Districts (NACD) proclaimed April 24 to May 1 as Stewardship Week with the theme “We All Need Trees.”

According to WCCC Director Victoria Dietz, the Washakie County Conservation District is celebrating Soil and Water Stewardship Week again this year by asking Washakie County fifth and second graders to participate in the annual poster contest.

“These posters remind us all of the importance of natural resources in our lives. The winning posters will be on display from April 25 to May 8 at the Washakie Wear building in downtown Worland,” Dietz said.

The grand prize winners for the 2016 Poster Contest are Elijah Truman for fifth grade. Truman is a student in Ms. Hampton’s class at Ten Sleep; and Grace Gertsch for second grade. Gertsch is in Mrs. Egger’s class at Ten Sleep. These two winners received a $40 check and a “We All Need Trees” T-shirt.

The fifth-grade winners are: Creedon Newell, 1st place, and Julia ML Burky, 2nd place at South Side School; Citlali Terazez, 1st place, and Sarai Matamoros, 2nd place at West Side School; Sophia Scheuerman, 1st place, and Kaydence Colleen Munoz, 2nd place at East Side School; Elijah Truman, 1st place and Isabelle Fox 2nd place at Ten Sleep School.
