What you do at home and in your community affects everyone downstream. This poster competition aims to encourage students to learn more about their role in the watershed in which they live and how to conserve and protect our water resources, today and for future generations.

All college students (grades 6-8) from public and private schools in New York State are eligible to participate in the poster competition. One student per poster. The deadline for receipt of posters is Friday January 7, 2022.

You can use any type of medium, including watercolor, pen and ink, pencil, chalk, and markers. The poster should be 8½ “x 11”, in landscape format on a white background. Posters must contain original hand drawn artwork – no poster or computer generated graphics. Copyrighted characters (such as Dory, SpongeBob, Ariel, etc.) and clipart will not be accepted.
