Every Drop Counts Children's Poster Contest
The 16th Annual Every Drop Counts Children's Poster Contest is underway!
Miami-Dade County Water and Sewer Department invites elementary school students from kindergarten through fifth grade to participate in the 16th annual "Every Drop Counts Children's Poster Contest." The theme for this year is "Water is Life: Let's Conserve It!"
The contest allows elementary school children to showcase their creative talents while learning the importance of water conservation. Thirteen first-place winners, one from each County Commission District, will receive recognition and prizes at a Miami-Dade County Board of County Commission meeting in May 2024. In addition, their artwork is displayed at the Stephen P. Clark Center during Water Conservation Month.
All participants will receive a free t-shirt.
The annual contest is part of Miami-Dade County's Water-Use Efficiency Plan, which features D-Rop, Miami-Dade County's cool water conservation mascot. The Water-Use Efficiency Plan's goal is to educate students by:
- Instilling an appreciation of water
- Helping them understand the importance of protecting this precious resource
- Providing information on how to conserve water
