ANNUAL WATER CONSERVATION POSTER CONTEST CHALLENGES STUDENTS TO THINK ABOUT WAYS TO SAVE WATER

San Diego -- Save water! Recycle water! Letís make every drop count! The annual Water Conservation Poster Contest began March 1, 2002 and ends April 23, 2002. City of San Diego public and private K-6 grade students are encouraged to use their artistic talent and their water conservation knowledge to creatively share their ideas on how San Diegans can save our most precious resource, water.

The Annual Water Conservation Poster Contest challenges students and teachers alike to think about how we use our limited supply of water and simple changes we can make to save water. The goal is to encourage teachers to talk to their students about the importance of saving water in San Diego. Through discussion, students will realize the important role water plays in our everyday lives, discover ways to save water and encourage them to practice water conservation on a daily basis. Ultimately, participation in the poster contest will give them the opportunity to express their new-found water awareness ideas on paper.

Contest winners will receive awards packages that may include a U.S. savings bond, a family four-pack of tickets to the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center and a recognition plaque. In addition, the winning posters will be on display in the City Administration Building lobby May 6-10, 2002 in honor of Water Awareness Month.

For more information about the annual Water Conservation Poster Contest, call the City of San Diegoís Water Resources Management Program at (619) 533-7556 or e-mail us at water@sandiego.gov.
