2013 Poster Contest

The AWSA has wrapped up its annual Watershed Poster Contest for grade 4 - 6 students in the Assiniboine River Watershed and would like to thank all those teachers and students that participated. The Assiniboine River Watershed once again lead the province with total posters submitted- receiving a whopping 109! As part of the educational aspect of the poster contest, AWSA coordinator, Jesse Nielsen, gave 7 in-class presentations at 5 different schools across the watershed. The presentations focused on this year's theme of "Water and Wildlife", teaching students about several aspects of the Assiniboine River Watershed, ranging from where our drinking water comes from, to the wide variety of animals that are found in and around the watershed's many wetland  ecosystems. 

Connor Nagy, a 12 year old, grade 6 student from Preeceville School received first place within the Assiniboine River Watershed with a phenomenal piece of artwork! Connor's poster was then judged against the 1st place winners from the 8 other participating watersheds in the province at the Annual SK Association of Watersheds Conference held in Moose Jaw April 9-10th. The level of competition was extremely high this year, with tremendous pieces of artwork competing for the provincial grand prize of a $1500 education bursary donated by Sask Water and an Apple iPad donated by the watershed associations. The grand prize was won by a student from the South Saskatchewan River Watershed.
