Congrats Alexis, PACD Poster Winner!
Congratulations to Alexis B. for her winning entry to the Pennsylvania Conservation Department’s Trout in the Classroom Poster Contest in the 7th-9th grade category! A letter from the Huntingdon County Conservation District praised Alexis’s work, stating:
Alexis's poster is both visually pleasing and demonstrates a knowledgeable understanding of this year's conservation message. Alexis's poster will advance to the state competition for a chance to compete against entries from across Pennsylvania. If selected at the state level, Alexis's poster will advance to the national competition for a chance to win cash prizes up to $200!
The poster contest was a safe alternative when the coronavirus derailed the Quilt Square Exchange program. Prior to the US coronavirus outbreaks, Grier Life Science students participated in the nationwide Trout in the Classroom Quilt Square Exchange Program. This year's theme was “Mountains to City to Sea.” Students designed quilt squares to illustrate concepts related to this concept of the watershed.
In previous years, Grier students shipped their messages and quilt squares to participating schools across the nation as part of the exchange. This year, Mrs. Fernandes reached out to the program coordinator to find a way to move the quilt square exchange online.
Enjoy viewing Alexis’s winning entry, the class poster, and several other quilt square poster entries submitted by seventh grade Life Science class students at Grier.
