City of Amarillo announces ‘Every Drop Counts’ poster contest


Summer is just around the corner, which means swimming pools and the watering of lawns.

The change of seasons also means it is time to remind residents of Amarillo’s most precious resource – water.

This is where City of Amarillo’s “Every Drop Counts” poster contest fits in with the community – as a reminder of the importance of water conservation.

The contest starts today, and ends May 15.

The “Every Drop Counts” poster contest is a way for Amarillo’s youth to increase awareness of water conservation.

The poster contest will be divided into categories consisting of kindergarten through second grade, third grade through fifth grade, middle school and high school. Three winners from each category will be selected, along with an overall grand prize winner. A total of 13 winners will be featured in next year’s “Every Drop Counts” calendar.

A presentation of prizes will be announced at the May 21 meeting of Amarillo City Council.

For more information, including past examples of “Every Drop Counts” posters, prize information and how to submit a poster for the contest along with entry forms, go to water.amarillo.gov.
