Macomb Public Works Commissioner Anthony Morocco recently recognized four Chippewa Valley students for their participation in two county-wide environmental competitions.
The students, hailing from Ottawa, Cherokee and Sequoyah elementary schools, were recognized at a Feb. 10 awards ceremony at the Macomb Intermediate School District, where each received a commemorative certificate, tackle box, rock climbing lesson and fishing lesson for their efforts.
The drawings of Ottawa student Nick Sirianni and Cherokee student Lauren Pryor were selected from more than 1,200 third-grade students in a county-wide contest related to the use and conservation of water.
The pair’s drawings will be featured as part of a 2011 Environmental Calendar produced by Morocco.
Pryor’s drawing will appear for April and Sirianni’s, for July.
Sequoyah fourth graders Rachel Baur and Christian Corey also received awards in a contest related to recycling.
Students were instructed to create a device or invention with materials that cannot be recycled. Baur created coasters from used crayons and Corey crafted a pillow from used Styrofoam.
