In December and January, Rostraver Township staff visited both Marion and Rostraver elementary schools to give presentations on water pollution, and invited the students to submit a poster on ways they can reduce water pollution.  The poster contest is an annual part of Rostraver Township’s Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) Program.  It is a program regulated by the EPA and DEP to address water pollution.   

The students were tasked with creating posters to show simple things they can do in their daily lives to limit pollution ending up in our waterways like the Monongahela and Youghiogheny River.  More information on the Rostraver Township MS4 program can be found on the Township website

Rostraver Township received 38 poster entries.  The Board of Commissioners hosted a pizza party for all entries and presented awards and gift certificates to the winners. 

First Place Winners:
Mackenzie Morrison, “Keep the World Clean!”, Marion Elementary
Delaney Naylor,  “Clean Up!”, Rostraver Elementary

Second Place Winners:
Everly Burns, “Keep the Earth Clean!”, Marion Elementary
Stetson Pierce, “Save Water! Don’t Pollute!”, Rostraver Elementary

Third Place Winners:
Gianna Virginia Dawson, “Pollution Hurts!", Marion Elementary
Lilia Jones, "Don’t Pollute!”, Rostraver Elementary

The winning posters can be found on display at the Rostraver Township Municipal Building, the Rostraver Township Public Library, Rostraver Elementary School and Marion Elementary School.  The Rostraver Township Board of Commissioners also thanked Mrs. Barkey, Mrs. Murphy, and parents/guardians at the meeting for encouraging the students to participate.
