About the theme “Stop the Flow of Polluted Stormwater”
Polluted stormwater is one of the biggest threats to Lake George water quality. Rainwater running off parking lots, roads, roofs, and cars can carry harmful pollutants to our streams and Lake. Therefore, we would like to encourage students to focus on Lake and watershed stormwater pollution prevention.
Ideas that fit the theme include keeping storm drains free of debris, planting along the shoreline/preventing erosion, “No dumping in the Lake,” rain barrels, rain gardens, no littering, etc.
You can learn more about stormwater threats to Lake George by searching “polluted stormwater” on our website.
About the Contest
The Lake George Bookmark Design Contest engages Lake George area students in an arts contest to develop and promote a lake-saving message.
Each year, the winning entry is printed on a bookmark along with the student’s name and school. The bookmarks are professionally printed and widely distributed to area schools, libraries, and other locations. The student is also recognized at a ceremony at the home school. In addition, a news release announcing the winner is distributed.
A limited number of bookmarks are still available from previous year’s at the LGA. Contact us if you would like a supply for your school or library.
