Youth Posters Wanted for Drinking Water Week
April 29, Deadline – Prizes and More
As part of National Drinking Water Week celebrations, Grants Pass youth are invited to submit hand drawn, 8½” x11” original art posters celebrating our great natural resource, the Rogue River. This year’s theme, “There When You Need It,” offers an opportunity to celebrate our community’s amazing and unique water resource.
Youth of all ages are invited to enter. In addition to cash prizes, winners in each age group be featured in the GP Now City Newsletter, on Social Media, Promotional Activities and recognized during a City Council Meeting. Contest details and rules are on the City website at: https://www.grantspassoregon.gov/1408/Poster-contest---Drinking-Water-Week
Using plain, unlined paper, contest entrants are asked to create a poster showing how to help protect the Rogue River simply by changing things in the course of everyday routines. Entries should be on 8½” x 11” horizontal piece of white paper and use crayons, colored pencils, pens, markers, or watercolors only (no chalk or computer-generated art).
Across the nation, utilities, private companies, and government agencies are joining to celebrate National Drinking Water Week. This year’s celebration, held May 1-7, 2022, highlights the value of water to each of us in our everyday lives.
This year’s theme is particularly timely for Jason Canady, Public Works Director, who noted, “The City Council has made a tremendous commitment to ensure the Grants Pass community will always have high quality water there when you need it.” As an example, he pointed to construction of the replacement water treatment plant and continued, “This investment will improve reliability and operational flexibility, leverage new technology, be more environmentally friendly, and increase efficiencies, offering the community great benefits.”
