National Water Week

National Water Week 2017

The theme for this year's national Water Week is Water the Heart of our Culture.

The theme encourages young people to explore how water shapes our everyday lives through recreational activities, the natural world and our community values.

 

National Water Week Poster Competition

 

To celebrate National Water Week, Central Highlands Water and the Australian Water Association are calling for primary school students to enter our annual poster competition. This year’s theme is Water – the Heart of our Culture.

Students are encouraged to create a poster relevant to them and their local area reflecting the connection between water and culture.

This is a great activity for the classroom in the lead up to National Water Week. In 2016 thousands of poster entries were received from Victorian primary schools.

Entries will be judged locally with winners in each category submitted for state judging. Great prizes can be won by both you and your school at local and state level.
