2017 Student Poster Contest

Shorter showers and turning off the water while brushing teeth are all great ways to conserve. But we can do more by looking beyond the faucet. How we use water outdoors is just as important as how we use it indoors. Water is a limited resource and we must continue to use it wisely. Students in grades K-12 are encouraged to create a poster that reflects this year’s theme Beyond the Faucet.

Thank you to all students who participated in the 2017 Student Poster Contest. The District received 253 student entries from 1st to 11th grades representing 16 schools in our service area.

Congratulations to the 18 winning students and 5 winning teachers of this years poster contest. Students and teachers were recognized at a Board Meeting in May and were awarded their prizes. Winning posters are in this years conservation calendar which are available at the District Headquarters.

One winner from each grade will be invited to attend an East Valley Water District Board meeting on May 24, 2017 to receive their prizes. The winning artwork will be featured in the East Valley Water District Conservation Calendar, receive $100 gift card and their framed artwork.

Teachers can win too! Every teacher who submits their students poster will be entered into a drawing to win a $300 gift card for classroom supplies. Five lucky teachers will be selected to win.
