The Department of Water Supply is currently holding its 9th Annual Water Conservation Poster Contest open to Maui County students from grades K through 8 and 2nd Annual Source Water Protection Video Contest for high school students in public, private and home-schools.
The Water Conservation Poster Contest is designed to encourage our young artists to express their own ideas in relation the chosen theme. We invite students to use their artistic talents to celebrate drinking water and to promote water conservation
“Use Water Wisely” is this year’s theme. Roughly the same amount of water exists on earth today as when it first formed on the planet. Our community’s increased demand for water and periods of drought make it critical that we all do our part to conserve water. Winning entries will be featured in the Department of Water Supply’s Water Conservation Calendar for 2019.
The Source Water Protection Video Contest is open to Maui County high school students (Grades 9-12). The purpose of this contest is to provide our youth (in a group of 3 or 4 or individual) with an opportunity to learn about source water protection and to utilize their creative talents to produce a 1.5 to 3 minute long video showcasing the importance of protecting our ground and surface water sources, which our residents and visitors depend on for drinking water and other important uses. The theme for this year is “Clean Water, Everyone’s Business.”
Entry forms and contest rules and guidelines are available at www.mauiwater.org. Entries must be received by March 16, 2017. For inquiries, please call 463-3110.
