Hundreds of student artists encourage water conservation through creativity

Stellar Student Artwork Showcases Water Conservation

More than 1,300 local students used their creativity to promote water conservation during the 14th Annual Water Awareness Poster Contest.  Students from 15 Pasco County elementary schools broke out their pencils, crayons and watercolors to create posters with the theme ‘We Need Water, Water Needs Us!’

Pasco County Utilities and the Florida Governmental Utility Authority, in collaboration with Pasco County Schools, hosted the competition to teach future generations about the importance of water and water conservation.

“Water plays such an important role in our lives and seeing the message of water conservation through a student’s eyes always gives a fresh, new perspective,” said Utilities Customer Information & Services Director Sandra Anderson, who also served as a judge.  “It’s amazing to see how each student expresses what they’ve learned about the importance of water through their unique view and outstanding artwork.”

Judges used Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math (STEAM) learning standards when choosing the top posters.  Winners receive trophies and gifts from the event sponsors.

Winning posters are on display in the lobbies of the West and East Pasco Government Centers through mid-August.  Pasco County Commissioners will recognize first place students – in Kindergarten through Fifth Grade – at their regular meeting June 20, 2023.
