Each year the City of Durham’s Department of Water Management celebrates National Drinking Water Week (May 5 - 11, 2019), by sponsoring a water conservation poster contest. This contest brings attention to the importance of water as a resource through art created by our Durham youth in kindergarten through eighth grade.
We invite students to use their artistic talents to celebrate drinking water and promote water conservation and efficiency. 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 “Water Is Life”.
Posters will be judged in three divisions: Kindergarten–2nd; 3rd–5th; and 6th–8th grades. Local winners will receive special recognition from the City’s Department of Water Management and City Council at a ceremony during Drinking Water Week (May 5-11th). Winning entries will also be displayed at City Hall on our social media platforms as well as the City’s website. The top three posters in each division will be selected to represent Durham in the statewide competition sponsored by the North Carolina Section of the American Water Works Association/Water Environment Association.
All poster entries from your school must be submitted according to the included guidelines no laterthan March 20, 2019. Participants can submit poster entries as a class or directly to the City without school sponsorship. Entries can be mailed or you can make arrangements for pick-up.
Congratulations to our all of our 2019 participants. The top posters from each grade division are featured below.
