2018 Poster & Poetry Contest

In celebration of Drinking Water Week 2018, DC Water is sponsoring a poster and poetry contest for K-12 public school students in Washington, DC. This year’s theme is “Protect the Source”.

It is important that students not only know the source of their water, but also that they are empowered to protect their waterways in order to enhance quality of life for all. Through this contest, students are encouraged to explore where their water comes from in the District and to ponder on creative ways to ensure the health of our watersheds for themselves and generations to come.

Entries were judged on originality, creativity and reflection of the theme.

We are proud to announce the 2018 Poster & Poetry Contest Winners
