Thank you to all of the students who participated in this contest. Over 450 entries were received!

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, we were unable to hold our Final Competition where students present their ideas to a panel of judges and audience to determine their placements and award amounts. Instead, all participants in the top ten received an evenly distributed cash prize. Schools/Clubs also received an award of $600 for each of their Finalist entries as well as participation awards.

Everyone did a great job!

Thank you to the Community Partners who help make CARING FOR OUR WATERSHEDS a success!
