Grade 7 student will have artwork featured in statewide calendar

| May 14, 2018

artwork depicting a hand holding the earth and giving life to animalsDid you know that it takes as much as 600 gallons of water to produce a cotton T-shirt?  It can take over 20,000 gallons to produce a car.  How much water do you use every day?

To help raise awareness, the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation and the New York Water Environment Association sponsored a poster contest.

Cooperstown will be represented in the 2019 calendar thanks to Cate Nolan, a Grade 7 student.  Out of all of the entries across the state, Cate’s work was one of 14 selections to illustrate the 2019 ‘Conserve and Protect Our Water’ calendar.

Congratulations Cate!
