New River Soil & Water District congratulates students who participated in this year’s annual New River Soil and Water Conservation contests.


Each year, the local NRSW conservation district offers contests to third-, fourth-, fifth-, and sixth-grader students to compete in the poster contest, said NRSW Education Coordinator Brenda Garland.


Also an essay contest is offered to 6th-grade students only, and a speech contest offered for seventh- and eighth-graders, Garland said. Students have been showing their talents through these soil and water educational competitions for more than 20 years, and many have gone on to win at area and state competitions.
