The FGUA and Pasco County Utilities would like to thank all the students and teachers who participated in our 12th Annual Water Awareness Poster Contest. Additionally, we would like to thank the Pasco County School District and our participating sponsors for supporting and making our program possible. This year, our program saw participation from 28 teachers across 14 elementary schools, as well as two homeschooled students, and more than 1,600 posters submitted!
The theme this year was “The Power of Water,” and sought to educate students on water’s ability to transform, ways water is used every day, water’s ability to influence landscaping and climate, and the importance of conservation.
On Monday, April 26th, the FGUA and Pasco County Utilities held their Final Judging event at Urban Air Adventure Park located in Port Richey. Posters that made it through Preliminary Judging were moved onto the Final Judging event in which a first, second, and third place winner for each grade level, Kindergarten through Fifth, as well as two Honorable Mention Winners from Clearwater Marine Aquarium, were selected.
Awards and Prizes
Winners will be receiving a trophy as well as a variety of prizes donated from Clearwater Marine Aquarium, Lane Glo Bowling, The Lift Adventure Park, Stealth Mobile Laser Tag, The Toy Jungle, and Urban Air Adventure Park.
Additionally, every student who submitted a poster for this year’s contest will receive a Certificate of Participation that includes a coupon for a free ice cream cone from Cold Stone Creamery and Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory of Trinity and a free kids meal card from Chick-fil-A of Trinity.
The 12th Annual Water Awareness Poster Contest was a great success. We look forward to awarding all participants with their certificates, and winners with their trophies and prize packages. We will also be placing the winning posters for display in the West Pasco and East Pasco Government Centers this summer and running a full-page color ad in the Tampa Bay Times!
