Earth Day 2020Top of Page

     The Library hosted our 7th annual Earth Day Project Contest the week of April 22. Twenty eight of our 3rd, 4th & 5th grade students worked hard to produce 25 recycling projects for the event! 
 Students were challenged to build/create/ or re-purpose/upcycle something out of recycled materials and enter their creation in one of three categories: Art, Useful or Inventions.  Even though students voted for their favorites, ALL who took the time to create a project are winners. Every one was unique and we are very proud of these students for participating. 
      USEFUL CATEGORY: Dillon Gygax for his Foosball table
ART CATEGORY:Ben Hughes for his Plastic Bottle Waterfall
  INVENTIONS: There were no entries in this category this year
