Jackson County Conservation District sponsors a 5th grade poster contest and a 5th and 6th grade essay contest for Arbor Day
Arbor Day is this Friday, April 30th. Every year the Jackson County Conservation District sponsors a 5th grade poster contest and a 5th and 6th grade essay contest. The Kadoka Elementary 5th graders have participated in both for many years. This year’s Jackson County winners are Lilly Uhlir and C.J. Bissonette. 893 essays were completed around the state, and Lilly’s was one of 23 selected to compete at the state level. 626 posters were drawn by South Dakota 5th graders, and C.J.’s was chosen to represent Jackson County. Twelve of the top posters are selected for the 2022 calendar, and C.J.’s poster placed fifth among the top 12 at the state level. His picture, hometown, and school with appear in the upcoming 2022 calendar. We always enjoy submitting our work and want to thank Jackson County Conservation District for allowing us such a great opportunity to showcase our work.
