DROP SAVER POSTER CONTEST

Draw and save water

We need water for everything. Not just us but all the animals too and we all need it in order to live. So you see how valuable water is. That's why we all need to use it wisely and not waste it. Help promote water awareness and water conservation by participating in the "Drop Savers" Water Conservation Poster Contest.

 
Join us and share with us all your ideas and creativity. It's easy and the rules are simple. And the best thing of all everyone is invited. That's right, all K-12 Osceola and Polk County students within Toho's service area. Contest entry form is at the bottom of the page.

What you need

8 ½" x 11" white drawing paper to make the poster. Use a portrait or landscape format.

Use crayons, color pencils, paint, markers, photography or computer graphics. Just make sure it all fits on the 8 ½" x 11" white drawing paper and have the letters and message large enough to be read easily. (BTW: For this contest highlighters do not work well.)

Entry form must be completely filled out and taped to the back of each poster. The entry form is on the next page.

The rules

Students must work on posters individually otherwise the poster cannot be entered into contest.

Please do not incorporate copyrighted material such as logos, characters or names in your posters. Also any computer graphics and photos must be the student's own work. Otherwise, we won't be able to enter them.

Student's name should not appear on the front of the poster but only on the entry form.

Remember to attach the completed entry form to the back of the poster with transparent tape.

Winners

Besides appearing in the calendar, the grand winner's school will receive $500 in art supplies. Also, the school with the most entries will receive $250 in art supplies.

Remember

Each poster must portray a water conservation idea in a slogan, drawing, or both. To help we've attached a page of tips and ideas.

Please encourage as many students to participate in the contest as possible. Suggested selection criteria are relevance to subject, creativity and originality, not just artistic abilities. Winners of the local contest will be forwarded to the statewide contest and notified.
