Winners announced in Conservation District youth art contest

PhotoS provided to the Times Observer Adley Brown’s interpretation of “May The Forest Be With You Always” took home first place in the kindergarten to second grade age group in the Warren County Conservation District’s youth art contest.

Asking students across the county to craft a piece of art with the theme “May The Forest Be With You Always” is certain to bring a variety of interpretations.

This year’s Warren County Conservation District youth art contest proved just that.

A total of 78 entries were received and the WCCD has announced the winners. Three were selected in each grade range while a People’s Choice contest was held from March 19 to March 29, according to Sherry Moore, conservation program assistant.

“Prizes and ribbons were provided by the Warren County Visitor Bureau including first place $25, second place $20 and third place $15 in each age group,” she said. “Ribbons were also given to the People’s Choice winners in each age group.

“Congratulations to the following winners of this year’s contest.”

Logan Woldt’s art took home the People’s Choice award in the kindergarten to second grade age range.

Winners include, in grades K-2, Adley Brown in first place, Logan Woldt in second place and Nora Colvin in third; in grades three through five, Elsie Woldt in first place with Averyanna Salapek in second and Charlie Pearson in third; in grades six through eight, Nina Woldt in first with Emma Hughes in second and Nakomis Heeter in third as well as Emily Landers in first for grades 9-12.

People’s Choice winners included Logan Woldt, Elsie Woldt, Heeter and Landers.

“Additionally, the Warren County Conservation District is now holding their fifth annual Photo Contest sponsored by Allegheny Outfitters,” Moore said. “The photo categories are fire, bridges, insects and fields.”
