Even better in color: River of Words is a national poetry and art competition coordinated in Georgia by the Georgia Center for the Book and Project WET (Water Education for Teachers), a program of the Georgia Department of Natural Resources. Students in grades 4-12 were invited to create visual art or poetry that shows an understanding and appreciation of their natural environment, and specifically of their own watershed. More than 2000 entries were received in three grade categories. Entries were judged on a state and national level; Georgia has had several national grand prize winners in recent years. The Covington Branch of the Newton County Library System will proudly host the display of the River of Words Art and Poetry Competition Winners for 2009. This exhibit will be in the Meeting Room from July 20 to August 1.
