PROTECT OUR WATERSHEDS ART CONTEST

Our 9th annual Protect Our Watersheds Art Contest is underway! This annual contest integrates art into classrooms across the state and educates our next generation of leaders about the importance of watershed health, source water protection and water conservation!

As a leader in environmental stewardship and watershed education, it’s our duty at West Virginia American Water to ensure our next generation is engaged and understands ways they can help keep our watersheds and drinking water sources clean and healthy in West Virginia.

ELIGIBILITY

The contest is open to third-, fourth- and fifth-grade students in schools served by West Virginia American Water. The contest can serve as a classroom project, and individual submissions from students who live within the company’s service territory are also welcomed.

THEME
