Brighton elementary students illustrate importance of water conservation

5th-graders win top prizes in city-sponsored poster contest

Posted

Four fifth-grade students at Foundations Academy won the City of Brighton's inaugural Water Conservation Poster contest.

"Each entry demonstrated different aspects of the need for conservation with such color and creativity that it made it quite difficult to choose the winning designs," said Marc Johns, the city's interim director of utilities. "It shows us that the youth in our community really understand the importance of conservation."

Poster contest winners were: Ximena Rico Estrada, first place; Keelyn Beddo, second place; Cieanna Wollert, third place; and Mackenzie Garza, honorable mention.

The city launched the poster contest to educate youth about the importance of water conservation through creativity. The contest was open to kindergarten through fifth-grade students, and the winners were chosen from more than 50 entries.

Winners each receive a gift card. In addition, the first-place winner wins $100, second place earns $50 and third place and honorable mention receive $25. 

Students were honored at a recent Brighton City Council meeting, and the first-place poster will be displayed throughout the city.
