The voting period for the Cover Art of our 2018 Kid’s Conservation Calendar is complete! The winner will be on the cover of next year’s calendar. Thank you to everyone who participated. There were so many great artists.
Each year the Clackamas River Water Providers holds a coloring contest with local elementary schools in our service area to create our annual Water Calendar.
The theme for the 2017 Calendar was “Why Water is Important To Me”. We had 17 classes from 8 different schools participate in the contest with close to 600 entries. Thirteen pictures were chosen from all the entries submitted and were used to create the calendar. In October each school that participated in the contest will receive a box of calendars “175 count” to give away to students and families or to use as school fundraisers.
As our communities grow, saving water is one of the most effective ways to make the best use of our existing water resources and help protect the environment. The winners featured in the calendar as well as the tips found in the calendar will help you identify simple and easy things you can do to reduce your water use at home and help us protect our watershed.
A special thanks to area teachers who worked with us each school year to bring water education into the classrooms. We look forward to years of community partnerships such as this.
