Schools competition showcases watery creations

GLENORCHY primary school students are invited to make the most of the wet weather by depicting their watery experiences on a poster as part of TasWater’s annual schools competition.

Held as part of National Water Week from 16-22 October, this year’s theme is ‘Water, Life, Growth’.

TasWater acting education coordinator Kate Beard said the annual schools competition gave students the opportunity to depict what water meant to them.

“TasWater has been very impressed by past entries and looks forward to seeing how the primary school children of Tasmania bring this year’s theme to life in their posters,” she said.

“One of the best things about our poster competition is that it gives students a fun way to develop ideas about water.

“Water is a precious resource that is often taken for granted and the community as a whole needs to value and look after it, even after flooding.”

The poster competition is open in four categories – prep, grade one and two, grade three and four, and grade five and six.

Each category prize-winner will be presented with a Samsung Galaxy tablet at one of the poster exhibitions to be held in October.

The winner’s school library will also be rewarded with a water-themed book pack.

Entries are now open and posters can be submitted on an A3 piece of paper by Monday 12 September.
