poster contest winners
In celebration of its upcoming One Year Anniversary and to commemorate National Recycling Month, Idaho County Recycling sponsored a poster contest. The contest was open to students in grades kindergarten through seniors in high school. Awards were given within these categories in each community: grades K-2, 3-5. 6-8, 9-12.
The students were asked to design a poster promoting recycling and were encouraged to be as creative as they wished. The only requirements were a 12” x 18” size limitation and the use of the words, “Idaho County Recycling”, displayed somewhere on the poster.
Many unique and creative entries were received from the vast majority of Idaho County schools. A special mention for Outstanding Participation goes to the schools in Cottonwood, with all levels participating in the contest. Their posters were well-researched, unique, and showed creativity and thought.
All of the students who entered deserve praise for a job well done. The poster committee appreciate the students efforts both in the their artwork and in their recycling efforts.
