H2GO Announces NBHS Poster Contest for Drinking Water Week

H2GO is looking to celebrate American Water Works Association’s (AWWA) Drinking Water Week from May 7-13. In an effort to support local high school students, H2GO is teaming up with North Brunswick High School to host a poster contest. 35 years ago AWWA began celebrating Drinking Water Week. After the event was well-received, AWWA brought Drinking Water Week to the attention of our government in 1988 and formed a partnership with the League of Women Voters, the Association of State Drinking Water Administrators, and the US Environmental Protection Agency. Drinking Water Week is a unique opportunity for both water professionals and the communities they serve to join together in recognizing the vital role water plays in our daily lives.

 

H2GO is inviting any and all North Brunswick High School students to participate in a poster contest to help celebrate Drinking Water Week. The posters will depict drinking water in some way, highlighting its importance to our community and the world. The art can be as complex or as straightforward as the student desires, using any medium they choose. H2GO’s staff will judge the posters and the winning student will receive $100 in exchange for their poster, which will be framed and hung up in H2GO’s main office. The deadline for the contest will be 12:00 PM on Monday, May 1 and the winners will be announced at 3:00 PM on Friday, May 5.

 

“We believe our youth are the future of our community and we want to help them follow their dreams. We hope that this contest will encourage the students in a positive manner and give them a sense of accomplishment from their artwork being hung up in a public display,” says Tyler Wittkofsky, H2GO’s Public Information Officer and a product of Brunswick County’s school system himself. This is a great opportunity for North Brunswick High School students to show off their skills and begin a great path to success.
