Call For Entries: Stormwater Pollution Awareness Month Poster Contest

Friday, October 01, 2021 8:24 AM | Lori Henrickson (Administrator)

Elementary Students In Nevada May Enter Starting Oct. 1

Elementary school children in grades K-6 across Nevada are invited to participate in the Stormwater Pollution Awareness Poster Contest Oct. 1-15 to honor Stormwater Pollution Awareness month this October.

Clark County Water Quality has teamed up with the Nevada Department of Transportation, Southern Nevada Water Authority, and the LV Wash Coordination Committee to raise awareness around the fact that in Nevada, anything that goes down the storm drain goes directly into local waterways without treatment.

See attached flyer and the website linked below for full information.  Entries will be accepted Oct. 1 – 15th, and the winners will be selected on October 22nd. The posters will be featured in a 2022 calendar with the first-place poster appearing as the cover art. Winners will also receive swag bags and 10 copies of the 2022 calendar for family and friends. Calendars will be distributed to participating elementary schools across the state.

All art must be drawn by hand (not computer-generated) in permanent marker, crayon or paint on an 11x17 piece of paper.

Submissions may be submitted physically, or via a photograph or scan,  digitally at
