12th Annual Dare Soil and Water Conservation District 5th Grade Bookmark Contest

Post Date:06/13/2018 11:28 AM

The 12th annual Dare Soil and Water Conservation District 5th Grade Bookmark Contest was recently held in elementary schools across Dare County. Educational outreach is an important part of the mission of Dare Soil and Water. Fifth grade students across Dare County learned about the importance of clean water and conservation efforts during their spring science curriculum and demonstrated their newfound knowledge by illustrating a bookmark. First, second and third place winners were selected from each school and first place winners’ artwork was printed as a bookmark and distributed to every student in their school. Additional bookmarks are also available free to the public at the county libraries in Hatteras, Manteo and Kill Devil Hills.
