  • CLA Poster Contest Is Announced

    The China Lake Association has announced the Fourth Annual Poster Contest. Here is the announcement that was issued last week. 

    Dear China Middle School 5th and 6th Grade Students and their Parents,

    The China Lake Association (CLA) is sponsoring its Fourth Annual Poster Contest. This year, the CLA is asking students to work with their parents to create an informative poster based upon the Alewife Restoration Initiative (ARI).  We are privileged to have Landis Hudson, the Executive Director of Maine Rivers join us to present an awesome and inspiring program to introduce and explain the ARI. The program will be presented at the China Middle School on March 27 at the approximate times of 9:00, 11:45 and 12:45. It will explain how the health of rivers, lakes and the ocean are connected, and how this helps people and wildlife. Parents are invited to attend the program at the school. If this is not convenient for parents, the program will also be available on the China Lake Association’s website:

    The posters should, first of all, INFORM the public about alewife restoration, and should focus on China Lake and its surrounding watershed. The poster judges will be looking for COLORFUL, well ORGANIZED, and visually appealing posters.  Drawings should be bold and imaginative.  They can create a slogan for the project or a logo.  Posters must be submitted on the poster paper provided and contain the child’s name. The deadline for submitting posters is June 12.  There will be first, second and third place winners for each grade. Two of the judges are local artists and two are directors of the China Lake Association.  The  China Middle School will provide the judges with contact information to inform students who have won.  Some posters will be displayed at local businesses to support the project.  Awards will be presented at the China Lake Association’s Annual Meeting to be held July 27, 2015 at the China Primary School.
