Fifth-Grade Students are Invited to Enter a Poster Contest About Tap Water!

Drinking Water Week, May 1-7, 2016, is an opportunity to recognize the vital role water plays in our daily lives and is celebrated each year during the first full week of May. To celebrate, the Department of Natural Resources is holding a poster contest for Missouri fifth-grade students!

Deadline: Entries should be postmarked by March 16, 2016.

Size: No larger than 11 x 17 inches.

Media: Artists may use any color or media (crayons, marker, pencil, etc.) to create their posters.

Information to include: Student name, teacher name, school name, address and phone number.

Where to send entries: Susan Bloomer, Missouri Department of Natural Resources, Public Drinking Water Branch, P.O. Box 176, Jefferson City, Mo 65102-0176.

Prize: $300 for first, $200 for second, $100 for third.

Entries will be judged on three criteria: how original the entry is, how well the concept is executed and how well the poster relates to public water supplies. The poster should show how tap water is essential to our daily lives!
