Winners have been chosen in the seventh annual Every Drop Counts poster contest conducted by the town of Boone.

The contest was in conjunction with the observance of National Drinking Water Week.

The contest was for the second graders at Hardin Park and Two Rivers elementary schools.

“ This year, we had 100-percent participation from all classes, and each class will get a field trip to the water treatment plant, as well as a pizza party picnic to celebrate their hard work,” program coordinator Lane Weiss said.
