National Water Week Poster Competition

Entries are now open for the 2020 National Water Week Poster Competition. Great prizes for students and schools


Each October, National Water Week (19 - 25 October 2020) makes a splash right across Australia, inspiring individuals, communities and organisations to work together to build community awareness and understanding around water related topics and challenges.

We are calling for primary aged students in our region to enter our annual competition.

The theme for this year is ‘Reimagining our water future'. As our population grows, this will put more stress on our water resources, so how can we reimagine the way we use and reuse water to ensure there is enough of it in the future? How can we rethink our current water practices to help conserve valuable water resources? Students are encouraged to make a poster reflecting what this world would look like to them.

Teachers – this is a great activity for the classroom in the lead up to National Water Week.

Last year, thousands of entries were received across Victoria, with Western Water receiving just over 600 entries from the schools within our region. Our highest number of entries ever!

Melton Primary School won a $500 contribution towards a sustainable project at their school. See below for additional information about our other 2019 winning entries.

2020 poster entries are invited in five categories:

  1. Prep / Foundation
  2. Years 1 & 2
  3. Years 3 & 4
  4. Years 5 & 6
  5. Special needs students

There are great prizes to be won in each category, including:

  • First prize – $100 gift card
  • Second prize - $50 gift card
  • Third prize – $30 gift card

Each school entering has the chance to win a $500 grant towards a sustainability project at their school. Also, winners in the Western Water National Water Week poster competition will proceed to the State poster competition.
