Winner of 2015 Art Poster Contest

May 6, 2015

The winning poster for the 2015 Water for Wildlife was drawn by Jacob Tocker, a Grade 5 student attending Coronation Park Community School.

A panel of judges felt there were many great pictures to choose from. WUQWATR received over a total of 50 entries from various schools within it's watershed area. The judges' final decision was not only based on the depiction of how the student felt water is essential to our wildlife, but also on the picture's style, color and balance.

Jacob's picture was also entered into the provincial contest held in conjunction with the annual SAW conference in April of this year. Unfortunately his picture was not picked to win the provincial grand prize of an outdoor recreation package.

WUQWATR staff along with Jacob's parents, faculty and all the students of Coronation Park School will be on hand to make the presentation to Jacob later this month at their school assembly for the grand prize of $200 for his great efforts. 

WUQWATR wishes to thank all of the entrants of this year Art Poster Contest.
