RESULTS: Lakes Appreciation Poster Contest

July has been Lakes Appreciation Month for the past 22 years. This spring, we invited elementary, middle, and high school students to submit posters reflecting on how important lakes are to all of us. Submitted artwork will be a big part of NALMS’ celebrations through July.

With nearly 60 entries, our volunteer judges had a tough job deciding our three winners (one per grade category). Entries were judged on creativity and originality, how well they represented Lakes Appreciation Month, and overall presentation. We are excited to share the results with you!

Thank you to all of the amazing artists who sent us their posters!
