Each year, the ‘Every Drop Counts’ Poster Contest showcases the creative talents of several thousand Miami-Dade County students.
All Miami-Dade County elementary school students from kindergarten through fifth grade are invited to participate in the Annual Every Drop Counts Children’s Poster Contest.
One winning entry will be selected from each of the 13 Miami-Dade County Commission Districts. Each participant will receive a free t-shirt and a chance to win other great prizes and recognized by the Board of County Commissioners.
The top posters will be displayed in the Stephen P. Clark Center lobby.
The due date for the 11th Annual Every Drop Counts Children’s Poster Contest is February 1, 2019. The theme is “Be a Superhero; Conserve Water!”
The ‘Every Drop Counts’ Poster Contest allows elementary school children to showcase their creative talents by conveying the importance of water conservation. The contest is part of Miami-Dade County’s Water-Use Efficiency Plan’s public outreach program which features D-Rop, the Miami-Dade water conservation mascot. The outreach program builds on the County’s historical involvement with the communities it serves and focuses on two types of activities: information and involvement.
The Water-Use Efficiency Section has determined a need to better educate the youth of Miami-Dade County by
1) instilling an appreciation of water;
2) the importance of protecting this natural resource and
3) provide information on water use efficiency from Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department and State and Federal conservation initiatives.
As a result, the program has developed an innovative student and art project to encourage local students to use their creative talents to promote water conservation.
