We are pleased to announce that six Charlestown students have won MWRA’s Annual Poster and Writing Contests.

From the Warren-Prescott School, Isaiah Guthrie, grade 2, won First Place in the Grades K-2 Poster Contest. Nadine Johnson, grade 2, won Second Place.  Molly McGuinness, grade 3, won First Place in the Grades 3-5 Poster Contest. Austin Sa, grade 4 and Carleigh Schievink, grade 5, won Honorable Mention.

Julia Pistorino, a Charlestown resident and second-grader at St. John School, won Honorable Mention for her poster.

This year, students across the MWRA service area were challenged to create posters, essays and short videos to promote the importance of flushing responsibly. Nearly 4,000 students entered the contest.

All of the winning posters and essays are available for viewing on www.mwra.com and at the Metropolitan Waterworks Museum through the July 4th weekend. The videos are posted on MWRA's YouTube page.

MWRA honored the winning students, their teachers and families at an awards ceremony held at the Deer Island Wastewater Treatment Plant on Friday, May 23. Ceremony photos are posted on flickr.
