Northwest student wins rain barrel drawing contest

Posted by wlpo on April 8, 2011

Cutting back on water consumption is part of having a greener household and one way to do that is with a rain barrel.  A state effort promoting the use of rain barrels asked Illinois students to create the art that would be featured on them.

Northwest Elementary School second-grader Noah Willis will have his art featured on a rain barrel for the school.

Steve Massey with the Illinois Department of Transportation was at Northwest School Friday afternoon to announce the winners of a drawing contest.

Four elementary schools in District 3 received free rain barrels; among them was McKinley Elementary in Ottawa and Northwest Elementary School in LaSalle.

The rain barrels were donated by Illinois Correctional Industries.
