We’re looking for your artistic representation of what the value of water means to you and your community.
Imagine a Day Without Water by pausing to notice the way that water systems impact our lives and communities. What your day would be like if you couldn’t turn on the tap and get clean drinking water, or if you flushed the toilet and wastewater didn’t go anywhere? A day without water is a public health and safety crisis -- there wouldn’t be water to wash your hands, or supply hospitals or fire hydrants.
Art will be judged in three categories: K – 4th Grade, 5th – 8th Grade, and 9th – 12th Grade. One grand prize winner from each category will receive $100.
Children related to WSSC Water employees are able to participate and will be judged separately. Grand Prize winners who are related to employees will receive an age-appropriate activity kit in lieu of a cash prize.
If your child has special needs, please indicate that in the description of the artwork.
Submissions due by October 7.
The contest is open to any child between 5 and 18 years of age living in Montgomery or Prince George’s counties. They can be enrolled in a public, private or homeschool.
Winners will be asked to virtually attend WSSC Water’s Commission Meeting on Wednesday, October 21, the day nationally recognized as Imagine a Day Without Water.
