A watershed contest

Dear Editor:

The Watershed Project Team of Roaring Fork Leadership and the Roaring Fork Conservancy would like to thank everyone involved in creating the first annual Watershed Poster Contest.

The contest was open to fifth to eighth graders throughout the Roaring Fork watershed. This year’s theme was, “What Is the Definition of a Watershed?,” and we received many creative, beautiful, artistic representations in answer to the question. The contest winners were announced April 26 at the Aspen Center for Environmental Studies (ACES) during the Earth Day celebration, and you will see the grand prize poster on display on RFTA buses and at local businesses throughout the summer.

We sincerely thank all of our sponsors ” Design Workshop, Blazing Adventures, Brunelleschi’s, Cooper Day Real Estate, Columbine Landscape Service and Thomas Clennon ” our judges and our participants for helping to make this contest such a success. We are also grateful to Anderson Ranch and ACES for the generous use of their facilities.
