More than 1,200 local students took their creativity to new heights to promote water conservation during the 13th Annual Water Awareness Poster Contest.  Students from 11 Pasco County elementary schools broke out their pencils, crayons and watercolors to create posters with the theme: “Do Your Part, Be Water Smart.”

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 conservation.

“Water plays such an important role in our lives and having all of these students participate with these amazing posters just shows there is no age limit to water conservation,” said Utilities Customer Information & Services Director Sandra Anderson, who also served as a judge.  “Each student expresses what they’ve learned through their art, and it’s always impressive and makes a lasting impression on the student and the community.”

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

Winning posters are on display in the lobbies of the West and East Pasco Government Centers.  Pasco County Commissioners will recognize the winning students at their regular meeting June 21, 2022.
