What do you do with 205 pieces of paper? Take a Pagosa Springs scene that is close to your heart, draw it on a piece of paper, apply some color and create art for the 11th annual Historic Preservation Youth Poster Contest.

The Historic Preservation Board received 205 art entries from Pagosa Springs youth for the poster contest that began in April and was open to all Pagosa Springs youth in three categories — elementary and younger, junior high and high school.

The theme for this year’s contest was “History in the Making: Celebrating Youth in Preservation.” The board decided to adopt the same theme as the state, defining the theme as “What do youth see in Pagosa Springs that is worth preserving?”
