SOAK IT UP!…Keeping water on the land

Create images that inspire action! Freshwater Society is asking high school students to design graphic messages that encourage homeowners to do more to use rainwater.  Whether it’s inspiring people to add a rain garden or redirecting rain spouts….your design should convey the message to use water wisely by keeping it on the land and out of the drains!

The Work for Water Art and Design Contest builds on the last seven years of successful Water is Life Art Contests. The Work for Water Art and Design Contest will not only highlight the importance of water in our lives, but also educate and provoke citizens to take simple steps to protect our waters.  Freshwater Society, in collaboration with Synergy and Leadership Exchange and Minnesota Service Cooperatives, ask students to create graphic design, short videos, photos, paintings, drawings, etc. to be used as messaging tools to engage Minnesotans in protecting water.  They will become tools inspiring change!
