The City of Evanston is hosting a third-grade art contest in celebration of National Drinking Water Week (NDWW), May 5-11. The purpose of NDWW is to celebrate water as our most precious natural resource. This year’s theme is “Protect the Source.”

Third-grade students are invited to showcase their ideas of what “Protect the Source” means to them. Art submissions should fit on an 8.5-inch by 11-inch piece of paper or smaller. Hard copies of submissions should be dropped off or mailed to the Evanston Water Production Bureau, 555 Lincoln St., week- days 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. no later than 4 p.m. on March 4.

The student’s full name, school, classroom number and teacher’s name must be stated on the back of artwork.

Online voting to determine the People’s Choice Award winner will be held March 22 through April 5. Mayor’s Choice and Water Spirit Awards will also be awarded.

Winners will be announced at the Administration & Public Works Committee Meeting of the Evanston City Council. Awards will include Evanston beach tokens for the 2019 summer, a plaque recognizing achievement, and a chance to have their artwork displayed at the Evanston Public Library, 1703 Orrington Ave., during Drinking Water Week.

Additional activities for National Drinking Water Week, including tours of Evanston’s Water Treatment Plant, will be announced in March.
