BUFFALO, N.Y. — Environmental enthusiasts and local students gathered at Franklin St in Buffalo to announce the winners of the 2013 Live Positively Rain Barrel Painting Contest.
Sponsored by Coca-Cola, 25 local high-schools painted barrels designed to save rainwater and prevent pollution.
Lewiston-Porter High School took first place and won $500, followed by City Honors in second and Lancaster High School in third.
Coca-Cola Director of Operations Pat Greco explained the importance of the students' projects.
