FALLBROOK – Fallbrook fourth graders are being asked to put their creative caps on for a water-conservation coloring contest. The best and brightest posters depicting this year’s “Water Is Life” theme will be included in the 2011 water-conservation calendar that will be available to Fallbrook Public Utility District (FPUD) customers.
The annual contest is a collaborative effort by 13 North County water agencies, including FPUD. It is an effort to highlight the importance of water awareness in semi-arid San Diego County. Most fourth-grader’s have studied water and the water cycle, and can vividly depict the need for saving water.
Most of Fallbrook’s fourth-grade classrooms will be visited by FPUD spokeswoman Noelle Denke who will test their knowledge with a game of water bingo, talk about water conservation and then invite pupils to participate in the contest. Pupils whose classes have not been visited are also encouraged to enter.
Contest forms can be picked up at the FPUD district office, 990 East Mission Road.
The deadline to enter is Wednesday, March 31. Winning entries will be selected in April and then recognized at the April FPUD board of directors meeting.
Posters will be judged on best expression of the theme, design, creativity and artistic skill. All Fallbrook pupils’ artwork will also be posted in FPUD’s community room throughout the month of May. The 2011 calendar will be ready for distribution at the end of the year and copies will be available in the office for customer pick up.
