Maine Clean Water Week Poster Contest
COMPETITION FOR GRADES 3-8
In 1983 the Maine Legislature made provisions to designate the first full week of June as Maine Clean Water Week. Maine Clean Water Week was created to increase the public’s awareness of the improvements made in the quality of Maine’s waterways. One of the primary reasons our waterways have so greatly improved is due to the hard work of Maine’s collection system and wastewater treatment plant personnel.
The Maine Wastewater Control Association is a nonprofit organization whose goals include promoting education and communication within the wastewater treatment industry and to the general public; supporting a balanced view of environmental policies; and enhancing the image of wastewater personnel.
In recognition of Maine Clean Water Week, June 3-7, 2013, the Maine Wastewater Control Association is again sponsoring a poster competition for students in Grade 3-8. The theme of the competition is “What Clean Water Means To Me.”
Cash prizes will be awarded to the top three entries chosen from all posters submitted. In addition, the winning student’s school will receive a donation. The winner will be honored at the Maine Wastewater Control Association’s 2013 Fall Convention or at a school assembly.
