2015 Poster Contest Results
Water Conservation Poster Contest Draws 495 Entries
The Department of Water Supply’s 6th Annual Water Conservation Poster Contest drew 495 entries from over 25 public, private and home schools countywide. Students portrayed the theme “Make Every Drop Count” and included a water conservation message in their artwork. The goal of the contest is to educate Maui County’s youth on the importance of water conservation and to encourage them to take an active role in ensuring the sustainability of our islands’ water supply.  

The contest entries were evaluated based on water conservation message, originality, and visual effectiveness. Winning entries and honorable mentions will be featured in the 2016 DWS Water Conservation Calendar, and will also be honored at an award ceremony in the Mayor’s office. The posters will be on display in the Department of Water Supply on the 5th floor of the Kalana O Maui Building in Wailuku.

The volunteer judges were representatives of the art community, watershed partnership community, and the teaching community on Maui.
