Water Week Drawing Competition

Water Week Drawing Competition

National Water Week is taking place from October 19-25. To celebrate, council is encouraging primary school aged children to enter the Water Week Drawing Competition.

The theme for National Water Week is ‘Reimagining our Water Future’, as our population grows, there will be more stress on our water resources, so we want our young artists to think about the way we can use and reuse water to ensure there’s enough of it in the future and draw a picture that represents their idea.
