The Marshall County Soil Conservation District held its annual poster contest for grades K – 12. This contest provides kindergarten through twelfth grade students an opportunity to convey their thoughts about soil, water and related natural resource issues through art. It also highlights the educational outreach efforts of conservation districts and their state conservation associations, auxiliaries and agencies. The steward ship theme for this year was “Healthy Soils Are Full of Life”.

The winning entrants were Devon Richter from Chapel Hill Elementary (grades K – 1), Alyssa Bennett from Chapel Hill Elementary (grades 2 – 3), and Claira Wakefield from Cornersville Elementary (grades 4 – 6). Each winner received a certificate and a check for $25.00 from the District, and their poste rs will be entered in the Tennessee Association of Conservation Districts Poster Contest.
