Selecting the winners was not an easy task for the judges. Three winning posters were selected from each grade category. The winning posters will be framed and displayed for one year at the Servus Arena and downtown Red Deer Public Library. All submitted posters will be displayed at the G.H. Dawe Community Centre, Collicutt Centre and Servus Arena during the summer.
Thank you to the Red Deer River Watershed Alliance for partnering with The City of Red Deer.
