Ahead of National Water Week 16-22 October, primary school aged children across the Central Coast are encouraged to create a poster reflecting water-related issues that are important to them and our local area.
The National Water Week Primary School Poster Competition is open to children aged between 5-12 years across the country. Central Coast Council Water and Sewer are working with The Australian Water Association on the program.
Director of Water and Sewer Jamie Loader said entries will be judged locally by Council, with winners in each category submitted to the Australian Water Association for national judging.
“Winners will be chosen using a number of criteria including how well the poster conveys water related issues relevant to the area and how well it can be reproduced to help promote National Water Week.
“Entries must be submitted by Friday 22 September, with local winners put forward for national judging during National Water Week,” Mr Loader said.
Central Coast Council Administrator Rik Hart encouraged primary-aged children across the community to get involved.
“National Water Week aims to encourage the community to become more conscious of their water usage and increase education, understanding and sustainability efforts to help conserve our most precious resource: water.
“The National Water Week Primary School Poster Competition is a perfect way to help educate our younger generations in a fun and engaging way,” Mr Hart said. For more information on the National Water Week Primary School Competition or to submit your poster go to, Council’s Love Water website.
