After the town decided to nix its curbside recycling pickup, Unity officials weighed different ways they could encourage residents to continue recycling.

When a member of the budget committee suggested holding a poster contest promoting why it's important to recycle, Aubri Bosco, 10, and her sister, Riley Bosco, 8, decided to put their artistic talents to the test.

Aubri Bosco eventually was selected the winner of the inaugural contest.

"This was a really fun contest to participate in," Aubri Bosco, who loves to draw, said.

Aubri and Riley are the daughters of Jason and Rebekah Bosco.
