Commissioners Award PALS Poster Winners

The winning poster for the 4-6 grade category was created by Carly More of Pickens Academy. Miss More and her teacher, Mrs. Sara Cracker, were both on a field trip in Washington D.C. at the time of the award presentations.


At the Pickens County Commissioner’s Meeting on April 24, County Administrator Cheryl Bowles announced the winners of the 2018 People Against a Littered State (PALS) Poster Contest. Although participation was much lower than hoped, the winners were congratulated, and parents and teachers were recognized for their efforts.

Winners were:

K – 3rd grade category, from Reform Elementary, first place, Azariah Harris, from Mrs. LaQuita Kennedy’s class.

4th – 6th grade category, from Pickens Academy, in first place, Carly More; second place, Sophia Papania; and third place, Gil Noland. All winners were from Mrs. Sara Craker’s class.

First-place winners will continue to compete in the state competition.

“I just want to tell you how much we appreciate y’all and appreciate your effort into the posters, and moms, we appreciate y’all helping with them,” Commissioner Chairman Randy Dillard said. The other commissioners also congratulated all the winners and participants of the contest.
