The County of Hawaiʻi Department of Water Supply (DWS) held its first annual Water Conservation Poster Contest, inspiring Big Island keiki to artistically interpret the DWS motto “Water, Our Most Precious Resource.”

Students from kindergarten through fifth grade were invited to submit entries on behalf of their elementary school until March 22, 2019, in celebration of World Water Day.

Over 200 entries were received from students islandwide for this inaugural poster contest.

Posters were evaluated on originality, visual artistry and their ability to convey the contest
theme, which focused on fresh drinking water.
