16th Annual Lake George Bookmark Design Contest

The LGA is looking for original artwork for the 16th Annual Lake George Bookmark Contest. Entries are now being accepted from all students in 4th and 5th grades who attend public, private or home schools in the watershed, including Lake George, Bolton, Whitehall, Ticonderoga, Putnam, Fort Ann, Queensbury, Hadley-Luzerne, Warrensburg and The King’s School.

The 2024 bookmark theme is:

PLANTING TREES TO MAKE STORMWATER CLEAN

Stormwater pollution is the biggest threat to Lake George water quality. Rainwater and snow melt running off impervious surfaces, picking up nutrients and other contaminants creates stormwater pollution. Stormwater flows off lawns, roads, roofs and parking lots, moving downhill, making its way into streams and eventually the Lake. 

A great way to help filter stormwater is by planting trees and other native vegetation. Trees help slow down the flow of water into streams and the Lake by promoting infiltration, which helps filter out pollutants in stormwater.

Contest opens March 15, 2024.
The deadline for entries is April 19, 2024
