FEDCO Announces World Water Day Poster Contest Winners


DATE:  March 31, 2015


In recognition of World Water Day, local Kindergarten thru 8th grade students took part in a Poster Contest sponsored by Fluid Equipment Development Company (FEDCO).    Elementary and middle school students were invited to create a color poster illustrating how water is essential in food, health, and energy.  Winners received ribbons and prizes, with all students getting a participation ribbon.

In 1993 the United Nations General Assembly designated March 22 as the first World Water Day to raise awareness regarding different issues of water around the world.  The campaign focus for 2015 is ‘Water and Sustainable Development’.  It’s about how water links to all areas we need to consider to create the future we want; water is vital for health, nature, urbanization, industry, energy, food, and equality.
