2015 Winning Entries “Local Heroes – Your Hardworking Pollinators”

Congratulations to the 2015 Grand Champion Winner of the Annual Poster Contest, Aleia Sabra of Sabra Enrichment School, Manahawkin! Thank you, and “great job” to all those who participated in the 2015 contest! The 2015 theme, “Local Heroes – Your Hardworking Pollinators” is an important one that affects all citizens. 2015 participants learned that pollinators such as bees, butterflies, hummingbirds and other creatures provide us with food, clean air and a safe place to live. Unfortunately, pollinators are in decline; there are many reasons for pollinator decline. This year’s poster contest participants shared reasons why pollinators are so important and offered solutions to increase pollinators and their habitats.
