Conservation Poster Contest

Each spring, the WCC collaborates with art and science teachers in the Wells-Ogunquit Consolidated School District to host a conservation-themed poster contest for students in Grades 1 through 12. The artwork of 68 Wells-Ogunquit students was recognized at the Wells Conservation Commission 14th annual student poster contest awards night.  More than 200 people, representing at least three generations, gathered at the ceremony and exhibit of the winning Grades 1-12 posters. This year’s contest theme, “Rivers and Streams of Wells,” was interpreted by each of the student artists.  The winning works of art were selected by a panel from more than 400 entries, and were mounted and on display at the school.  Local teachers Sandy Brennan, Margaret Burman, Bruce Fearon, and Vanessa White-Capelluti supported their students in creating art for the contest.  WES Principal Marianne Horne, teacher Karen Taylor, Sarah Blevins and David Norton helped to coordinate the Wells Elementary School hosting of the event.  Contest judges were Rocky Furman, Audrey Grumbling, Carol Simpson, and Michele Stivaletta-Noble.  Prizes were provided by Anna and Bill Spiller of Spiller Farm and Big Daddy’s Ice Cream.
