2016 Poster Competition is now open

The annual National Water Week poster competition is now open.

Primary School students are asked to create a poster reflecting water related issues which are important and relevant to them and their local area.   

Great prizes are on offer and in addition to the State competition, the winners in Lower Murray Water’s service region in each group (Prep, Year 1-2, Year 3-4 and Year 5-6) will be featured in a 2017 calendar and receive some great prizes.

Entries are judged on:

  • how well the poster conveys water related issues relevant to your area ie: inland school posters would not be focussed on ocean activities
  • how well it can be reproduced to promote National Water Week
  • appearance: attractively displayed in colour
  • how good it looks from a distance
  • effective use of art materials, and
  • originality of design or innovative concept

The poster must be A3 in size and any art material can be used including paint, textas, coloured pencils or collage materials. One poster per student can be entered with the official entry form completed.
