Protect Our Watersheds Art Contest

The application for our Protect Our Watersheds art contest is now OPEN!


The contest is open to sixth-grade students in schools served by  New Jersey American Water, as well as to students who live in the company’s service area.

We encourage students to tap into their creativity to express the importance of protecting natural water resources through art!

Entries should reflect positive messages about why our watersheds are valuable and how we can protect them. All artwork must be the student’s original work. Artwork, on standard white 8.5” X 11” paper is preferred, and should not exceed 11” x 17” in size. Acceptable media are paint (water colors or oil), colored pencil, markers or pastels. We have extended the deadline for all entries to be postmarked by May 10, 2024 with judging to take place in May 2024.
