GRANTS PASS – For more than 40 years the City of Grants Pass and the American Water Works Association have celebrated Drinking Water Week as a unique opportunity for communities to come together and recognize the vital role water plays in our daily lives.
“Every year during Drinking Water Week, we celebrate, recognize, and protect our great water source, the Rogue River,” said Public Works Director Jason Canady.
To help promote the celebration and conservation awareness, the city will sponsor its third annual Drinking Water Week Poster Contest for local students, grades K-12. Students are asked to create an original poster design using the theme: “There when you need it.”
Student poster design entries will be accepted in four categories; grades K-2, 3-5, 6-8, and 9-12. Thirteen winning posters will be selected, and each winner will receive a $100 prize. The entry deadline for submissions is 5 p.m. Friday, April 29.
