Junior Public Works staff for a day

Lincoln, ON – (May 22, 2019) – Lincoln is celebrating Public Works Week this week with the next generation of Public Works staff. The Town issued a drawing contest to students in grades 3-6 at Twenty Valley Elementary School. Students were asked to draw what public works means to them with winners selected to be Public Works Staff for a Day.

Submissions were creative and included various interpretations of how public works contributes to our community each day. Students joined the Town today, May 22, to participate in a tour and public works activities.

The Junior Public Works Staff for a Day selected were:
