Schools Participating In Naming Contest For Land

New Hampton, Iowa – The Chickasaw County Conservation Board is holding a contest to name the newest area we’ve acquired near New Hampton.The contest is open to all elementary, middle and high school students in Nashua-Plainfield, Sumner-Fredericksburg, St.Joseph’s and New Hampton.

Matt Crayne is a naturalist with the conservation board and says the students get prizes if they’re the winner.


The parcel contains 2 ponds, wetlands, grassland, and it has the potential to have a trail around it that could become part of the Tribe Trail (bike trail) of New Hampton.  Crayne says they wanted to get the students involved and aware.


Entries should be emailed to before November 2, 2018. The Conservation Board will make a decision at the November 5, 2018 Conservation Board meeting. The winner will be noted in the winter issue of the Seven Rivers Record.

Chris was born in Webster City and raised in Charles City. As a young kid, he would always be caught singing along to songs on the radio. He says he's good at karaoke but we think otherwise. ;) In his free time, he enjoys beginning new projects at home and hardly ever finishing them. Chris lives in Charles City with his wife Vicki, daughter Brynlee and son Jaxon.
