Josh Krom, an 8th grade student at St. Paul School, has been selected as the county winner of the 2015 Conservation Writing Contest.
Rylee Higdon, a 5th grader at Clarkson Elementary School designed the county winning poster for the 2015 Jim Claypool Conservation Art contest.
Kim Seaton, Chairman of the Grayson County Conservation District, expressed the appreciation for the cooperation and support of the Board of Education and the schools in conducting these contests.
This year, the contest was sponsored by Kentucky Farm Bureau and the Kentucky Association of Conservation Districts to acquaint students with conservation of our soil, water and related natural resources.
A total of 12 essays were written, and 34 posters were designed countywide. We, the District, would like to congratulate each school that participated and each participant for doing such a great job.
There were no entries from Caneyville, Lawler or H.W. Wilkey Elementary Schools, or the Grayson County Middle or High Schools.
