Last week we highlighted the local winners of our conservation poster contest.  The theme for the 2024 Poster Contest this year was “May the Forest be With You, Always”. The Poster Contest was open to kindergarten through 12th grade students, and posters were evaluated on the following criteria: Conservation message, Visual effectiveness, Originality, Universal appeal, and Individual artwork. The students that took 1st Place at the local level advanced to the Area Contest which was hosted in Oneida County on February 6th, 2024. The North Central Land and Water Conservation Assocation consists of 9 area counties. We had three students place at the Area Contest.  They were Jayden Seiler (2nd place) and Madelyne Tilton (1st Place) from Laona. We had one student from Crandon place at the Area Contest and that was Ariah Peterson (2nd Place). Because Madelyne Tilton took 1st Place at the Area Contest, she will advance to the State Contest which will take place at the 2024 Wisconsin Land+Water Conference in Green Bay, WI on March 6-8th. Good Luck to Madelyne at the State Contest!
