Five St. Mary’s students were winners in the recent Middle School “Green” Poster Contest.
This contest was jointly sponsored by the Alton Beautification and Clean City Committee, Pride Inc., Republic Waste Services and The Sierra Club. Students were asked to create a poster that urged environmentally responsible behavior and careful custodianship of the planet.
Three Alton area middle schools entered the competition. They were St. Mary’s, St. Ambrose and Alton Middle School. Prizes were awarded for the top three posters in each middle school grade level, so there were a total of nine winners. St. Mary’s had five of the nine possible winners.
The winners from St. Mary’s School were:
- Emily Stahl, second place
- Dexter Elmendorf, third place
- Kaitlyn Coles, first place
- Meme Walters, third place
- Jayden Bell
The nine best posters, including the five from these students, are hanging on the wall at City Hall. There are 100 more posters on display at The Alton Square Mall.
All of the winners will be honored at the Alton City Council Meeting at Alton City Hall on May 14 at 7:30 p.m.
