The Every Drop Counts poster contest was created to bring awareness to the need for water conservation in the City of Amarillo. Participants were asked to depict their ideas of making every drop count. The contest was open to students in the Amarillo community, in age groups ranging from kindergarten through 12th grade. Artwork was judged on creativity, quality of design, and reproducibility.
Winners were announced at the August 14th Amarillo City Council meeting. They were chosen from the following age groups (school year 2018-2019):
- K through 2nd grade
- 3rd through 5th grade
- Middle School
- High School
The Grand Prize winner received a Kindle Fire HD 10 tablet. Other great prizes included:
- Party at AirU (K-2nd grade)
- Private Pool Party at the new Warford Activity Center (3rd through 5th grade)
- Passes to Wonderland Park for you and four friends (Middle School and High School)
A total of 13 winners will have their artwork featured in the 2019 “Every Drop Counts” calendar. Prizes were donated by Best Buy of Amarillo, AirU, and Wonderland Park.
