National Water Week (17-23 October 2022) makes a splash across Australia in October each year, inspiring individuals, communities and organisations to build awareness around the value of water.
To learn more about National Water Week, visit the Australian Water Association’s National Water Week page.
This year’s theme ‘Our water stories’, invites us all to reflect and share our own individual connection to water.
Your story could involve a picture of a favourite local water way, or swimming with family at the beach. Maybe it’s sitting quietly by a river or enjoying a glass of clean, fresh water on a hot day. Or it could involve ideas on how you save precious water – let your imagination run wild!
We celebrate National Water Week each year by running a poster competition for local primary school students within our service area.
Primary school students are invited
to create a poster reflecting their own water stories.
For teachers and parents/carers – this is a great activity for children in the lead-up to National Water Week.
Entries close midnight, Friday 2 September 2022
