A lesson on water conservation is paying off for some kindergarten students at a Coon Rapids elementary school.On Wednesday, the non-profit group H2O for Life stopped by Hamilton Elementary to present Ms. Wefel's kindergarten class with the first place award for elementary schools in its annual statewide poster contest. The poster needed to include the words "clean drinking water starts with me." In addition to that, students drew a picture of themselves on the poster."We talked about our own responsibility with how clean drinking water is important, how we can help out by how, one, it gets clean...and how to keep the environment clean, talked a little bit about picking up trash with parental permission," says Kristin WefelH2O for Life received more than 1,300 entries from over 70 schools in Minnesota. The contest, which culminates on World Water Day, is designed to raise awareness about water resources and conservation.
