Local Students Recognized For Winning ‘Drop Savers’ Contest

The Wellington Village Council recognized the local winners of the Drop Savers Water Conservation Poster Contest on Tuesday, March 28. The Florida section of the American Waterworks Association sponsored the Drop Savers contest, in which students from local elementary and middle schools are welcomed to participate. Students had to create posters depicting water conservation methods and water awareness messages. Posters were judged based on their message, creativity and originality. The first-place winner’s artwork from each division will move up to a state-level competition. This year, 195 students from four local schools participated in the competition. Eight winners were students from Panther Run Elementary School and Wellington Landings Middle School. Shown above, the council honors the local contest winners.
