National Drinking Water Week is May 3rd to 9th! Evanston is celebrating the theme of drinkability – “the ability to have clean, safe, reliable water whenever it is needed.”
To celebrate this year’s National Drinking Water Week, the City will be hosting two contests for children and teenagers.
First is an art contest for 3rd grade students – the City is looking for 3rd graders to showcase what drinkability means to them! Projects should be no larger than a 9×12 piece of paper, and voting will take place March 23rd to April 6th.
Second is a photography contest for students between 6th and 12th grade. Photos should focus on the theme of “100 Years of Clean Water,” and can feature anything from ways to reduce water use to our local water resources like Lake Michigan.
The winners of both contests will be announced April 27th, and will win several Evanston Beach Tokens for summer 2015, a plaque recognizing their achievement, and will be featured at the Evanston Public Library. Submissions for both contests are being accepted now through Monday, March 16th.
