Today, the YLWD Board of Directors recognized Emily Garten, a third grader in Mr. Laporte's class at Rose Drive Elementary School, for winning this year's bottled water label contest.
With her family watching, Board President, Bob Kiley presented Emily with a Proclamation from the District thanking her for artwork. Emily’s artwork will be featured on the inside label of YLWD’s bottled water for the next year.
Since the inception of the District’s bottled water program, YLWD has incorporated water education into the bottle holding a label artwork contest each year, with the winning artwork displayed on the label.
Dozens of entries were submitted from elementary schools across the District. After narrowing the field to a top three finalists, the winner was decided by the public in an on-line vote. More than 1,500 online votes were cast, with Emily receiving 753 votes to win the year’s contest.
Thanks to all the students who participated and to everyone who voted!!!
