A pair of sixth graders from Park Avenue Memorial Elementary Schoolwere recognized for their creative efforts to encourage water conservation.

Kaytlin Valerio was a third place winner in the 2019 Water Conservation Poster Contest hosted by the Long Island chapter of the New York Water Environment Association. Christasha McNeil earned honorable mention. Each student received a certificate and an Amazon gift card.

Students completed their submissions after learning about the water cycle. The lesson included guest speakers from NYWEA. The poster contest is designed to encourage students to learn about their roles in the watersheds in which they live, and how to conserve and protect water resources for future generations.
