Keeping Lake Champlain Healthy, One Drawing at a Time

As the new school year approaches, students across New England reflect upon a summer’s worth of fun, events, and relaxation.  For many kids who live in or visit Vermont, Lake Champlain is central to summertime pleasure.  There are many ways to enjoy Champlain, thus plenty of reasons to keep it clean.  This was the idea behind the CLF drawing contest held at the Lake Champlain Maritime Festival.  The assignment read, “design a card that shows what you love about Lake Champlain and how to keep it clean”.  It was both exciting and heartening to see artistic young minds reflect upon what they valued about Lake Champlain and the environment.  A simple drawing contest such as this can go a long way, ensuring the next generation is engaged in environmental stewardship.  CLF would like to thank the Skinny Pancake and the Echo Center for donating prizes for this contest.  Here are our winners’ lovely drawings:
