4-H coloring contest winners announced

A coloring contest was held for our local 4-H’ers to educate them on noxious weeds and nuisance plants.
They were presented with information from Ethan Proud, the Archuleta County Weed and Pest Control supervisor and asked to participate by coloring a weed of their choice.
The winners are Chance Ramirez, who colored houndstongue, and Korban Lee, who colored a Gambel oak. Each winner will receive a $25 gift card.
Congratulations, Chance and Korban.
