Each year Rowland Water District hosts an annual poster contest where students are encouraged to create posters which depict water being used wisely at home, in the community, in recreation, in the environment or new water saving ideas for the future. Our goal is to get students thinking about the importance of our most valuable natural resource—water.

RWD judges the posters based on creativity, spelling and originality. Rowland picks the top three posters from elementary, middle school and high school and awards the students with an Amazon gift card. The first TEN teachers to have their ENTIRE class submit posters will receive an art kit!

➡️ NEW This Year! Classrooms located within the RWD service area are eligible for a FREE art supply kit (valued at $70) that includes crayons and colored pencils for the entire class. Limited kits are available and the online form MUST be completed by February 18th. Art supplies will be mailed directly to the school once selected.

The winning entries advance to the Metropolitan Water District’s regional poster contest where 36 entries will be selected to be featured in MWD’s Water is Life calendar which is distributed to schools and the community. The artwork is also featured in a traveling art show, on MWD outreach materials and will appear on MWD’s website for a week.

The 2022 Water Awareness is now closed. Stay tuned for our winners!
