Girl wins conservation poster contest

Bella Doub, a fourth grade student from Pinebrook Elementary School, earned $200 as first place winner in the N.C. Soil & Water Conservation 4th Grade Poster Contest in Raleigh on April 16.   

Bella was one of eight fourth grade state-level contestants after winning Davie’s competition and the 12-county Area 8 contest. The topic of the poster contest was “Wetland are Wonderful!”.

“Competition is so strong, winning students frequently do extensive research and weave general conservation measures and the work of the state’s 96 soil and water conservation districts into the body of their posters,” said Frankie Singleton, Davie district resource specialist.

The poster contest is sponsored on the local level by soil and water conservation districts and their association, and organized at the state level by the N.C. Division of Soil and Water Conservation. The contest is one of many educational opportunities offered throughout the year by the Davie County Soil and Water Conservation District.
