World Water Day 2018 has been designated as March 22, 2018. International World Water Day is held annually as a means of focusing attention on the importance of freshwater and advocating for the sustainable management of freshwater resources. The theme for World Water Day 2018 is ‘Nature for Water.’

The key messages of World Water Day 2018 include:
‘Nature for Water’ – exploring nature-based solutions to the water challenges we face in the 21st century. Nature-based solutions have the potential to solve many of our water challenges. Planting new forests, reconnecting rivers to floodplains, and restoring wetlands will rebalance the water cycle and improve human health and livelihoods.

Poster Contest
Students should create a color poster illustrating how nature-based solutions have the potential to solve water challenges or protect water cycle sources:

            Grades K-2  By “planting new forests”

            Grades 3-5  By “reconnecting rivers to floodplains”

            Grades 6-8  By “restoring wetlands”

Each poster should be on paper or poster board size 8.5” by 11”. Students may use crayon, pencil, watercolor, paint, or markers. Only original artwork will be accepted. Computer-generated drawings will not be considered.

Each entry must have the student’s full name, address, phone number, grade, school name, and shirt size listed on the back of the drawing or essay. Only one entry per student will be accepted.
