AUGUSTA – To kick off Maine Clean Water Week, Governor Paul R. LePage, students, and members of the Maine Wastewater Control Association announced this year’s winners of the Maine Clean Water poster contest.

In recognition of Maine Clean Water Week, June 3-7, 2013, the Maine Wastewater Control Association sponsored the poster competition for students in Grade 3-8. The theme of the competition is “What Clean Water Means To Me.”

This year’s winners are Sofie Irons, Nick Rocray and Faith Ledger. All three students are 6th graders attending Massabesic Middle School in Waterboro.

The Maine Wastewater Control Association is a nonprofit organization whose goals include promoting education and communication within the wastewater treatment industry and to the general public; supporting a balanced view of environmental policies; and enhancing the image of wastewater personnel.

Cash prizes are awarded to the top three entries chosen from all posters submitted. In addition, the winning student’s school will receive a television/DVD combination and educational tapes. The top winner will be honored at the Maine Wastewater Control Association’s 2013 Fall Convention or at a school assembly.
