The Hicksville Water District Board of Commissioners recently announced the winners of its 2018 Water Conservation Poster Contest for K-5 students in Hicksville Public Schools. The District announced 34 exemplary grade-level winners out of more than 400 total submissions to the contest. One winning poster from every participating grade level at each of the seven Hicksville elementary schools was selected based on its clear and artistic representation of how students can conserve water in their everyday lives.
“The Hicksville Water District is thrilled to partner with the Hicksville Public Schools in building this educational opportunity for students to learn the importance of water conservation,” said Commissioner Karl Schweitzer. “We take an immense amount of pride in our ability to give back to our community and start productive conversations about how we can protect our most precious natural resource.”
The 2018 Water Conservation Poster Contest seeks to educate local youth about the importance of responsible water usage and is part of the Hicksville Water District’s dedication to providing a high-quality water supply to residents now and into the future. The winning artists of the contest each received a certificate to recognize their accomplishment, a $50 gift card to support their education and a myriad of water-themed prizes, including a reusable water bottle, squishy fire hydrant keychain, colored pencils and a coloring book.
