Water Conservation Poster Contest

2018 Annual Water Conservation Poster Contest


Theme: Saving Water is Always in Season


The Department of Water Management sponsors an annual poster contest open to all Durham students in grades K through 8 (public, private and home schools).

We invite your students/children to use their artistic talents to celebrate drinking water and to promote water conservation. We are sponsoring this contest for schools and home-schooled children within our service area. The contest is designed to encourage our local young artists to express their own ideas, in relation to the chosen theme. This year’s theme is: “Saving Water Is Always in Season.”

Posters will be judged in three divisions: Division A for Kindergarten – 2nd grades; Division B for 3rd – 5th grades; and Division C for 6th – 8th grades. Local winners will receive special recognition from the City’s Department of Water Management. Winning posters in each division will be selected to represent Durham in the statewide competition sponsored by the NC Section of the American Water Works Association/Water Environment Association. 

All poster entries must be submitted according to the included rules no later than March 16, 2018. Students can submit poster entries directly to the City without school sponsorship. Entries can be mailed or you can make arrangements for pick-up. Complete contest information is available here or by using the Quick Links on this page.
