Prizes for Student Water Conservation Posters

Citrus County Utilities is seeking student participation in the 2021 Drop Savers poster contest.  Students in grades K-12 are encouraged to create a poster depicting a water-saving idea, in slogan form, drawing form, or both.  Posters must focus on how to use less water and encourage water-conservation behaviors. 

Prizes for Student Water Conservation Posters

As part of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA’s) ongoing We’re for Water campaign, this year’s theme is Fixing Leaks Saves Water to raise awareness to the nearly 1 trillion gallons of water wasted from household leaks each year.

A twenty-five-dollar cash prize will be awarded to the county-wide first place winners in each of the five divisions.  Posters will be judged by grade level as follows: Division 1- kindergarten and first grades; Division 2 – second and third grades; Division 3 – fourth and fifth grades; Division 4 – sixth, seventh and eighth grades; Division 5 – ninth through twelfth grades.  A fifty-dollar cash prize will be awarded to each division winner’s school to be used for art supplies, as well as a plaque displaying the winning artwork.

Applications and posters must be received by 5 p.m., Friday, February 26, 2021.  Mail or deliver submissions to 3600 W Sovereign Path, Suite 202, Lecanto, FL 34461.  For applications and contest guidelines, call (352) 527-7684.  

The Citrus County Utilities poster contest is part of the Keep Citrus County Beautiful annual Save Our Waters Week campaign and the Florida Section of American Water Works Association statewide Drop Savers poster contest.
