The Department of Water Supply (DWS) is accepting entries from students of the County of Maui for its Fourth Annual Water Conservation Poster Contest. Entry deadline has been extended to March 15, 2013, and the contest is open to public, private and home-schooled students from kindergarten to 12th grade.

Every student who creates and submits an entry will receive a Certificate of Participation. Winners will receive awards of $100 for first place, $75 for second place, and $50 for third place. A total of 18 prizes will be awarded with first, second and third place prizes presented to winners in each competition level. Winners will also receive a Certificate of Achievement. Honorable Mentions will receive gift certificates, and top winners will be recognized at an event in the Mayor’s office.

The department’s goal is to educate Maui County’s students on the importance of water conservation and encourage them to take an active role in ensuring the sustainability of Maui County’s water. Students should portray the theme “Our Water, Our Future” and include a water conservation message in their artwork.

Students may draw or paint their entry on 11” x 17” white paper, and complete and attach the entry form available at www.mauiwater.org. Contestants may drop off their entry form and artwork to the Department of Water Supply, Water Resources and Planning Division at 2200 Main Street, Suite 102 in Wailuku (One Main Plaza), or to the Deputy Director’s office on the 5th floor of the Kalana O Maui Building in Wailuku.
