West Fork Conservation District Hosting Annual Speech and Poster Contest

Posted: Updated:

The West Fork Conservation District is hosting its annual speech and poster contest this month.

Students of all ages from Harrison, Doddridge, Lewis and Gilmer Counties will meet Friday, March 15 to present their work, and choose a winner in each age group.

County winners will then move on to compete against each other next week.

District staff said it provides students a chance to have their concerns about the environment heard.

"Consequently it gives them a voice to express where they're living and the watershed they live in and the environment that they live in," said Dinah Hanna, of the West Fork Conservation District.

Poster contest winners will go on to compete at the state and national level, and the district has had multiple national winners.
