National Water Week

Every third week of October, National Water Week makes a splash across Australia, inspiring individuals, communities and organisations to work together to build awareness around the value of water.

Access to clean water is hugely important to every aspect of our lives, and we must do our best to protect our water environments and resources, and use water wisely.

The theme for 2020 is Reimagining our Water Future. As our population grows, this will put more stress on our water resources, so how can we reimagine the way we use and reuse water to ensure there’s enough of it in the future? How can we rethink our current water practices to help conserve valuable water resources? What can we do as individuals and as communities to inspire a more sustainable water future?

To celebrate National Water Week (19-25 October 2020) and build awareness around the value of water, Lower Murray Water and the Australian Water Association are calling for local primary school students to enter the annual poster competition.


Students are encouraged to create a poster – digital or paper – reflecting what the world would look like to them and their local area, inspired by this year’s theme.


There are great prize packs to be won and local winners will be nominated for state cash prizes.

You can enter the competition via:


  • Your school
  • Completing an entry at home and placing in the drop box at our Fourteenth Street office
  • Posting your entry to PO Box 1438 Mildura 3500, attention Education Officer – Alison Gercovich
  • By scanning your entry to alison.gercovich@lmw.vic.gov.au


Please make sure a completed entry form accompanies any entries.
