Entries for the 2019 National Water Week Poster competition close on Friday 30 August 2019.
Each October, National Water Week (21 - 27 October 2019) makes a splash right across Australia, inspiring individuals, communities and organisations to work together to build awareness and understanding around water related topics and challenges.
We are calling for primary aged students in our service region to enter our annual Poster Competition.
The theme this year is "It's time to change the world". Students are encouraged to make an A3-sized poster reflecting water related issues that are important 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 from Victorian Primary Schools, with Western Water receiving 331. St Catherine of Siena Catholic Primary School, Melton West, won a $500 contribution towards a sustainable project at their school. See below for additional information about our other 2018 winning entries.
