Guerin Memorial Essay Contest
The topics for the contest are chosen by the Coos SWCD Directors and have to do with conservation techniques pertaining to water quantity and quality, fish and wildlife habitat, and logging. The Contest usually awards three winners based on the selections from 3 to 5 judges. District staff removes all personal information from the essays so that they are presented to the judges anonymously.
The first place winner this year will receive $150 dollars cash and will have her name engraved on a traveling plaque that will stay at the Coquille High School for one year. The second place winner will receive $125 dollars, and third place winner will receive $100. All three winners will receive award certificates.
There were a total of 9 entries to the contest this year. The Coos SWCD looks forward to even more essays to read next year, so keep up the good work!
Donations to the Coos SWCD for the Guerin Memorial are also tax deductible as a contribution to a not-for-profit. A special thanks to donors for keeping this going!
* schools will be contacted late September or early October each year with that year's contest topics and guidelines.
