Eagle County Environmental Health recognizes poster contest winners

Contact: Terri Vroman, Environmental Health at 970-328-8755 or terri.vroman@eaglecounty.us

Eagle County’s Environmental Health Department recently recognized 25 fourth grade students during the 22nd annual Earth Day Poster Contest awards ceremony on April 24.

Each year, the department hosts the contest to bring awareness to local elementary students about specific environmental issues. This year’s theme was “Actively Green for Clean Air.” Staff visited schools during the month of April to conduct presentations on the theme. Students then created posters based on their knowledge from the presentation.

“Engaging kids in environmental stewardship is truly the gift that keeps on giving,” said Ray Merry, Director of Environmental Health. “Kids are our future and what they learn today translates into a better place to live. This cycle must never end.”

Environmental Health would like to thank the following sponsors for their contributions to the prizes for the contest: Actively Green Team, Capitol Theater Group, Cliff Simonton, City Market, Costco, Eagle Embroidery, ECO Transportation, Energy Smart Team, Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park, Town of Basalt, Town of Gypsum, Tunnel 23 Concepts, and WECMRD.
