Dulce Selina Violante, a third grade student from Mocksville Elementary school, won $200 in the soil and water conservation state level poster contest in Raleigh.

Dulce was one of eight third grade contestants after winning Davie County’s competition and the Area 8 contest consisting of a 12-county area.

The topic of the poster contest was “Water … the Cycle of Life.”

The poster contest is sponsored on the local level by soil and water conservation districts and the association, and organized at the state level by the N.C. Division of Soil and Water Conservation.

The poster contest is one of many educational opportunities offered throughout the year by the Davie Soil and Water Conservation District.
