The 9th Annual 2017 Every Drop Counts Poster contest
All Miami-Dade County elementary school students from kindergarten through fifth grade are invited to participate in the Annual Every Drop Counts Kids Poster Contest. The contest allows students to express the benefits of water conservation, receive a free t-shirt and win prizes! All entries must be postmarked no later than February 10, 2017.
The Every Drop Counts Poster Contest allows elementary school children to showcase their creative talents by conveying the importance of water conservation. The contest is part of Miami-Dade County's Water-Use Efficiency Plan's public outreach program which features D-Rop, the Miami-Dade water conservation mascot. The outreach program builds on the County's historical involvement with the communities it serves and focuses on two types of activities: information and involvement.
The Water-Use Efficiency Section has determined a need to better educate the youth of Miami-Dade County by 1) instilling an appreciation of water; 2) the importance of protecting this natural resource and 3) provide information on water use efficiency from Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department and State and Federal conservation initiatives.
As a result, the program has developed an innovative student and art project to encourage local students to use their creative talents to promote water conservation.
