National Water Week poster competition opens

Gippsland Water’s National Water Week poster competition is on again, giving students the chance to get creative and think about conserving water for future generations.

Managing director Sarah Cumming explained that the poster competition forms an important part of Gippsland Water’s community education program.

“Our education program focusses on using water wisely and the importance of water for human health.

“The National Water Week poster competition is a fun way for the youngest members of our community to think innovatively about solutions that will help protect precious resources as our population increases,” Ms Cumming said.

Primary school students are invited to design a poster that captures the Reimagining our water future theme.

“Water is our most precious natural resource,” Ms Cumming continued.

“This year’s theme is all about thinking of clever ways we can use and re-use water to ensure there is enough for future generations.

“We’re encouraging local kids to get creative and illustrate their innovative ideas,” Ms Cumming concluded.

Individual prizes are up for grabs and the winning school will receive $500 to put towards a sustainability project or Science Technology Engineering and Maths (STEM) resources.

National Water Week makes a splash across Australia in the third week of October each year.

Entries must be submitted to Gippsland Water by Friday 11 September 2020. Entry form and further details are available at
