The Winthrop Middle School staff and students recently announced that eighth-grade student Moriah Hajduk was chosen by the Maine Water Environment Association as one of this year’s winners of the annual Maine Clean Water Week Poster Contest.

Moriah was chosen out of 550 entries from around the state as the first place poster winner for grades 7-8 category and will have her poster represented in the 2016 Clean Water calendar, according to a news release from the school.

The theme of the competition was “Why Clean Water’s Worth it to ME.” Moriah will be recognized at a ceremony at the State House during Clean Water Week in June with Gov. Paul LePage, Maine Department of Environmental Protection Commissioner Patricia Aho, and MEWEA representatives.
