Seventh Annual Water Conservation Poster Contest and 2016 Calendar
2016 Poster Contest - By Water All Things Find Life
The Department of Water Supply invites all teachers to enter their students’ artwork in the 7th Annual Water Conservation Poster Contest. This contest is open to all Maui County public, private and home-schooled students from kindergarten to 8th grade. Every student who creates and submits an entry will receive a Certificate of Participation.  Winning entries will be included in the Department of Water Supply's Water Conservation Calendar for 2017.

"By Water All Things Find Life" is this year's theme.  Roughly the same amount of water exists on earth today as when it first formed on the planet. Our community’s increased demand for water and continuing drought conditions make it critical that we all do our part to conserve water.
