Congratulations to Morgan and J’Marion for placing 1st and 2nd place for The Georgetown School in the 2019 Georgetown Soil and Water Conservation District Essay Contest.  The essay contest is open to all sixth-graders in Georgetown County and features cash prizes of $50 for each first-place winner and $25 to each second-place winner in all eligible schools.

All TGS sixth-graders participated in the contest, writing a 400-500-word essay on the many ways we depend on soil for our existence and why it is so important not to “treat it like dirt.”  The sixth-graders studied the role soil plays in giving us healthy food and clean water in Science class with Dr. Neubauer, then worked on their essays in Language Arts with Mrs. Crosby.  We are very proud of Morgan and J’Marion for their achievement!
