Students can earn their classroom $100 while learning about the value of water service
BELLEVILLE, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Illinois American Water is inviting 3rd, 4th and 5th
grade classrooms within the Company’s service area to participate in an
“Imagine a Day Without Water” art contest. Winning students will win
their classroom a $100 donation. Artwork may also be featured in a
future bill insert and other Illinois American Water communication
This art contest is being offered in conjunction with the Value of Water
Coalition’s “Imagine a Day Without Water” event. All across the nation,
events and activities will take place to highlight the important, and
often taken for granted, role drinking water plays.
“While it’s hard to imagine even just one day without water, many still
take this critical service for granted. We hope to raise awareness and
educate about the value of water service by combining art with the
science of drinking water service,” said Bruce Hauk, president of
Illinois American Water.
Participation in the “Imagine a Day Without Water” art contest is easy.
Students are asked to draw a picture and write one sentence that
describes what water service and a day without water means to them.
Teachers can find instructions and materials online at www.illinoisamwater.com,
in the “Learning Center” area of the site. Learn more about “Imagine a
Day Without Water” here http://imagineadaywithoutwater.org/.
Last year’s winning artwork can be viewed on Illinois
American Water’s Facebook page.
