NWW – Primary School Poster Competition

Westernport Water marks National Water Week (NWW) each year by running a poster competition for local Primary Schools within our service area. The competition provides a great opportunity for students to put their artistic creativity to the test by creating a colourful A3 poster.

In 2023 we invited local children from 4-year-old kinder through to Grade 6 to design, draw or paint a poster that demonstrates how we are all “United by Water” and the important role water plays in bringing individuals and communities together.

Students submitted posters telling stories about their favourite activities around beaches, rivers and lakes, how they love drinking refreshing water after playing sport, how water links them to animals and the environment, and how important it is to them to keep waterways clean from rubbish and pollution.

In 2023, we received around 340 entries from 7 local schools and one kindergarton.

Well done to all entrants and in particular the winning students and school below.
