2019 Drop Savers Water Conservation Poster Contest
ABOUT THE CONTEST
Every year the Florida Section of the American Water Works Association (FSAWWA) works with local water utilities to sponsor the “Drop Savers” Water Conservation Poster Contest.

•Division One: Kindergarten – First grade
•Division Two: Second – Third grades
•Division Three: Fourth – Fifth grades
•Division Four: Sixth – Eighth grades
Division Five: Ninth – Twelfth grades
