What kind of animals drink from our local waterways?
Art for Water and Keene Department of Public Works introduce Drain Campaign: Keene, a collaborative effort to make the public aware of the direct connection from the city’s over 5,000 storm drains to the Ashuelot River, Beaver Brook, and beyond. Drain Campaign: Keene is a dynamic stenciling program that creatively reminds us of the importance of keeping our local waterways clean.
To launch Drain Campaign: Keene Art for Water is sponsoring Name That Animal Track Contest for elementary school children. Stencils of animal tracks have been applied near storm drains surrounding Keene Public Elementary Schools this past Saturday, during Green Up Keene. Students who correctly identify all four animal tracks near their school will be entered to win a prize to include a $25 gift certificate to The Toadstool Bookshops and a stainless steel water bottle from Innate Gear. There are also more mystery tracks around town near family-friendly sites like the YMCA, Keene Skate Park, Robin Hood Park, and the Recreation Center. The first 20 people who find these tracks and take a picture with it will also win a prize to include a stainless steel water bottle from Innate Gear!
Contest entries should include the student’s name, school, grade, and teacher. Photo entries should include the photographed person’s name and the best way to send his/her prize.
Name That Animal Track Contest runs from Saturday, April 13 through Earth Day, April 22.
Submit contest entries and photos via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Contest winners will be announced in the Keene Sentinel and prizes will be delivered to each winner at her or his school.
