LOUISA — The Lawrence County Conservation District hosted its annual Poster/Essay Banquet March 20 at the Louisa Middle School cafeteria with approximately 120 people attending.

Students and teachers from each school in Lawrence County worked together in drawing posters and writing essays pertaining to this year's theme — "Kentucky Soil, It Touches All Of Us." Among the awards given were trophies, savings bonds, T-shirts and certificates of achievement.

The conservation district this year awarded the $1,000 Mary Chandler Memorial Scholarship to Kaylyn Jo Burke, daughter of Joe Burke of Catlettsburg and Teresa Burke of Louisa. The scholarship is named in memory of Chandler, who spent her life promoting education, conservation and the use of our natural resources.

The teachers honored for their outstanding leadership in the program were Michal Adams from Louisa Elementary Upper and Alicia Robinette from Blaine Elementary.

The district honored Freddie Castle as 2002 Lawrence County Master Conservationist, and Larry and Richard Workman as 2002 Lawrence County Cooperator of the Year for their efforts and commitment to conserving natural resources by using their land properly and establishing the necessary conservation practices to maintain the fertility while increasing the productivity of their land.

"Birds of Prey" from the Natural History Educational Company was the banquet's featured presentation. Birds from around the United States were represented in the program and performed by a professional naturalist.
