The North Dakota Game and Fish Department is once again

Last winter the Game and Fish Department sponsored a contest for
students ages 6-18 to design a North Dakota Earth Day Patch.
Winners receiving a pair of Leupold 8×25 compact binoculars in the
three age categories were Carleen Christofferson of Tolna (6-9),
Ben Callahan of Dickinson (10-13), and Zachary Bristol of Stanley
(14-18). Callahan’s design was chosen the contest winner, and will
be used on this year’s Earth Day patch.
Groups participating in the Earth Day project are encouraged to
take the following precautions to ensure safety: keep young people
away from highways, lakes and rivers; and only allow older
participants to pick up broken glass.
Interested participants are asked to contact Pat Lothspeich at
328-6332 to receive a reporting form for their project.
