Madison County, MS Youths Advance to State Competition

Two winners of the District’s 2004 Poster and Essay Contest placed first in the Mississippi Association of Conservation Districts’ Central Area Competition. Christopher Host and Meredith Smylie, both of Madison, will now go on to compete against entries from all over the state. The contest which starts at the county level and ends at the national level is designed to encourage reflection on an environmental theme. This year’s theme was, “The Living Soil.” Christopher is a senior and Meredith is a sophomore at Madison Ridgeland Academy. Both of their posters portray the need and value of healthy, clean soil as well as the results of not protecting “The Living Soil.”
