    Broken Arrow High School junior, Paige Arnold, submitted the winning design in an art competition in October. The competions goal was to get ideas for a slogan and mascot to help tell people about the importance of keeping creeks and waterways clean.

    “Earth Day is an important day because it reminds everyone that the earth is our most valuable resource,” said Broken Arrow Mayor Craig Thurmond. “We need to continue to conserve our natural resources and become better stewards of the planet. We also need to research and adopt alternative sources of energy whenever and wherever possible.”
