Arlington Water Utilities is encouraging Arlington ISD students to think about the irreplaceable role water plays in their lives and in the environment, with the Value of Water Coloring Contest.
Arlington students in kindergarten through the fourth grade are invited to enter the contest by drawing, coloring and illustrating a picture with their answer to the sentence, "Because I have water, I can…"
Pre-kindergarten students can enter the contest by completing one of three coloring sheets. All of the entry forms are available online at SaveArlingtonWater.com. One winner will be chosen in each of the six grades participating (pre-k, kinder, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th).
The winning students and their teachers will each receive a collection of five water-themed books, along with water bottles and other fun water-themed prizes. Additionally, the winners from each grade will be invited to the Nov. 5 Arlington City Council meeting for recognition of their work.
The contest kicked off Sept. 14.
Tarrant Regional Water District, the Arlington Public Library and River Legacy Living Science Center are co-sponsoring the contest. Entry forms are available and can be turned in at all Arlington Public Library locations and River Legacy Living Science Center, 703 NW Green Oaks Boulevard.
The deadline for entries is by the end of the day on Monday, Oct. 14.
Winners will be announced on the Arlington Water Utilities Facebook page on Oct. 23.
