The Clean River Partners and the City of Northfield presented the winners of the 2021 Stormwater Pollution Poster Contest during the City Council meeting on August 17. Northfield students in grades 2 through 5 were asked to create a poster that represented the theme “Be the Solution to Stormwater Pollution.” The top three posters in each category will be displayed at Northfield City Hall throughout the year. First place receives free custard for a year from Culver’s, second place receives ten free admissions to the Northfield Pool and a Clean River Partners “Do 1 Thing” t-shirt, and third place also receives ten free admissions to the Northfield Pool.

The contest is co-sponsored by the City of Northfield and Clean River Partners to help educate students and families about what they can do to keep city stormwater and the Cannon River clean and safe. Three simple ways residents can keep the water that runs into city storm drains clean are by picking up litter in their neighborhood, sweeping grass and fertilizer pellets off of sidewalks and streets and back into their lawn, and by picking up after their dog.

Clean River Partners and the City thanks participants in the contest and everyone taking action to make sure that only rain goes down the drain in their neighborhood.

La organización Clean River Partners y la ciudad de Northfield presentaron los ganadores del concurso de carteles sobre la contaminación de las aguas pluviales de 2021 durante la reunión del Consejo Municipal del 17 de agosto. Se pidió a los alumnos de 2º a 5º de la ciudad de Northfield que crearan un cartel que representara el tema “Sé la solución a la contaminación de las aguas pluviales”. Los tres mejores carteles de cada categoría se expondrán en el Municipio de Northfield durante todo el año. El primer lugar recibe natillas gratis durante un año del restaurante Culver’s, el segundo lugar recibe diez entradas gratis a la piscina de la ciudad de Northfield y una camiseta de Clean River Partners que dice, “Do 1 thing”, y el tercer lugar también recibe diez entradas gratis a la piscina de la ciudad de Northfield.

El concurso está copatrocinado por la ciudad de Northfield y Clean River Partners para ayudar a educar a los estudiantes y a las familias sobre lo que pueden hacer para mantener limpias y seguras las aguas pluviales de la ciudad y el río Cannon. Los habitantes pueden mantener limpias las aguas que van a parar a los desagües pluviales de la ciudad de tres maneras sencillas: recogiendo la basura de su barrio, barriendo la hierba y las bolitas de fertilizante de las aceras y las calles y devolviéndolas al césped, y recogiendo los excrementos de su perro.

Clean River Partners y la ciudad de Northfield agradecen a los participantes en el concurso y a todos los que actúan para asegurarse de que sólo la lluvia se va por el desagüe en su barrio.
