National Water Week

Poster competition

Great prizes are up for grabs for students and schools

National Water Week is an annual celebration of water in Australia which occurs in the third week of October each year. It is designed to encourage the community to take action to help protect and conserve our most precious resource – water. This year National Water Week will run from 21 to 27 October.

National Water Week Poster Competition 2018

The theme of this year's poster competition is "Water for me, water for all". This theme encourages young people and the wider community to think about how we use water and how we can protect it so we have it in the future. Primary school students are encouraged to design an A3 sized poster that best depicts this theme. We encourage creativity including the use of photography, collage, paint, textas and pencils.

Prizes will be announced soon. Stay tuned!
