 Imagine a Day without Water Art Contest

Top Logo IADWW w date 2017

The City of Charlottesville, Albemarle County Service Authority, and Rivanna Water & Sewer Authority are holding the 3rd annual Imagine a Day without Water Art Contest. As some of you may remember, we held this contest for the past 2 years and have had very positive success. The goal of this contest is to educate Charlottesville and Albemarle students on the importance of water, and why it is important to conserve it and keep it clean. We’d like to continue the momentum developed by the previous contests, and find more ways to continue to be engaging, fun, and informative to students. The details are very similar to previous year’s contest, and the theme of the contest has been updated to illustrate “why does every drop count?” and why water is important to each student.

The contest runs from now until the end of business day Monday, October 16th. All art entries can be delivered by the student to the offices at the Department of Public Works, located at 305 4th Street NW.
