High School Fishing Conservation Projects
1st Place Winner 2019-2020
Peniel Baptist Academy
The Peniel Academy Bassmaster Anglers for Christ conducted a riverfront clean-up before and after the arrival of the Bassmaster Elite Series. They coordinated their efforts with Keep Putnam Beautiful, who supplies trash grabbers, buckets, trash bags, and re-usable water bottles for the clean-up. They collect four garbage bags of trash containing: cigarettes, cans, bottles, fishing line, and old discarded fishing equipment.
We would also like to thank the project's sponsors: Miller's Boating and the Coastal Conservation Association (CCA). They provided the students of Peniel Baptist Academy with Engel Backpack Coolers for placing 1st in the project.
