Robert Coleman won the Kids in the Creek T-shirt design competition and will have his design printed on 785 T-shirts for Kids in the Creek.
Robert is an eighth-grader at Haywood Middle Academy. Andrew Woody from Bethel Middle School was the runner-up for the competition.
This year was the second year Haywood Waterways Association offered the competition to students who participated in Kids in the Creek. The program has educated thousands of students in Haywood County since 1997. Every September, students, teachers, and volunteers meet at the Canton Recreation Park to learn about the water resources in their county. They learn about watershed hydrology, collect fish and aquatic bugs, and have an experience they will never forget.
This year’s Kids in the Creek students will be invited to enter the contest to produce next year’s winning design.
