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.
Gippsland Water and Australian Water Association are calling for primary students to enter our annual poster competition.
This year’s theme is “It’s time to change the world!” Students are encouraged to make a poster reflecting the value they place on water, how it is used across our communities and/or the importance of water in connecting people.
Entries will be judged locally. Winners in each category will then be submitted for state judging. Additional school and individual prizes will be awarded to the winners and runners-up of the state judging. Winners and runners-up will be presented with their prizes in time for National Water Week.
Group art work will not be accepted (only one student per artwork), and an official entry form must be securely attached to the back of each poster.
For inspiration on this year's theme, visit the AWA website.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 1800 050 500.
All entries must have a completed entry form attached to the back and be returned to Gippsland Water by 5pm 6 September 2019.
Buln Buln Primary School year 1/2 student, Edith Box is the winner of our poster competition for 2018. Edith scored herself a prize pack including a $100 iTunes Voucher.
Edith also won her school a $500 prize. The funds will be used towards a sustainability project or learning
Edith’s entry impressed us for her clever use of a ‘WATER’ acronym, vibrant colour selection and depiction of this year’s theme: Water for me, water for all. Edith’s decision to include a farm animal and two people carefully collecting every last drop of rain was particularly poignant this year, given the drought conditions currently faced by many regional communities.
