Many students at Kent Center School participated in a poster contest for Earth Day.  The theme of the contest was: How does Recycling Help Protect the Earth? Three members of our Kent Community donated their time to judge the posters. The judges included First Selectman, Bruce Adams, local artist, GeorgeAnn Gowan, and head of the Kent Transfer Center, John Kaminski.


Judges began by looking at all the posters that were hung in the KCS cafeteria. Posters were then judged based on grade. A first, second, and third grade winner was chosen for each grade level. The judges found it very difficult to pick only three winners for each grade, so there were posters chosen that deserved honorable mention as well.


The judges were impressed with the variety of ways that the children included to recycle. Some of the ideas that were included were: ride your bike or walk to school, reuse old clothes, reuse grocery bags, and read instead of watch tv.
