Annual Water Conservation Calendar
Each year the Clackamas River Water Providers have invited teachers and their students to participate in our annual water calendar coloring contest. Students demonstrate their knowledge of water by creating pictures that reflect the calendar theme.
The theme for the 2020 Calendar is “I Pledge to Conserve My Drinking Water”. We had 21 classes from 12 different schools participate in the contest with approximately 600 entries. Thirteen pictures were chosen from all the entries submitted and posted on the CRWP website for one week so the students, their teachers, families and friends, and the general public could vote for which one of the 13 pictures would be on the cover of the new calendar.
The winner of the picture contest will be revealed in October and each school that participated in the contest will receive a box of 125 calendars to give away to students and families or to use as school fundraisers. The calendars will also be available in all of the CRWP water provider offices, city halls, local libraries, and upon request by contacting our office at 503-723-3511 or emailing [email protected].
The CRWP annual calendar contest continues to be one of our most successful projects because of the enthusiastic participation of all our teachers, students, and community members. Thank you to everyone for your support.
The Clackamas River Water Providers are committed to protecting and conserving the water in the Clackamas River not just for our communities who drink the water, but for fish and the environment. 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 2019 Calendars are still available at Clackamas River Water Provider members City Halls, Libraries, and offices, or by contacting the Public Outreach & Education Coordinator. The drawings 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.
