The Tuolumne River Trust is pleased to announce the winners of our third annual kid's essay contest.
part of our education program, we asked Bay Area 4th, 5th, and 6th graders to
write essays about the Tuolumne River and water conservation. We received 31 excellent essays, and it was a very hard decision.
Our grand prize winner is Isha Rajput, a 5th grader from Palo Alto. Isha's essay "The Tuolumne River Needs Help!" can be found here.
Because of her wonderful essay and commitment to protecting the Tuolumne, Isha won a canoe trip for four on the Tuolumne River this summer.
Our second prize winner won a backpack stuffed with TRT goodies, and our third place winner won a backpack, both courtesy of REI.
