Senator Wieckowski honors ÒHabitat Means HomeÓ winners
Submitted By Annika Singh
In April 2017, over 600 students from Fremont, Newark, and Union City participated in the annual ÒHabitat Means HomeÓ poster contest. This event lets students from kindergarten to sixth grade celebrate the diverse habitats and species of Coyote Hills Regional Park.
The winners included images of the California King Snake, Peregrine Falcon, woodpecker and quail, amongst many others. The participants had to answer questions about their entry and explain why they chose a certain habitat. Awards went to first, second, and third place winners, with a few entrants receiving honorable mentions.
On August 25, Bob Wieckowski, Senator of the Tenth District, congratulated the winners at an ice cream social in the senatorÕs Fremont office. The Senator met all the contestants and asked them questions about their entries. Not only was it a memorable event for the students, but the posters are currently on display in the SenatorÕs office.
