For more than 40 years, the American Water Works Association and its members have used "Drinking Water Week" as a unique opportunity for both professionals and the communities they serve to recognize the vital role water plays in our lives.

This year's Drinking Water Week" is May 5th-11th.

The City of Grants Pass is calling on all kids grades K-12 to design a poster to demonstrate the theme "Reimagine Our Water Future." Three winners will be chosen from each category. Enter for a chance to win $75, $50 or $25.

Entries will be judged based on creativity, originality and relevance to theme. In 2023, more than 20 local students submitted original artwork focused on the theme "Go with the Flow."

Winners and their artwork will be featured on City of Grants Pass social media platforms and Josephine County Transit buses this summer.

Entrants are allowed to use crayons, colored pencils, markers, pens or watercolors on an 8-1/2 by 11-inch piece of paper.

The deadline to enter is April 26th.
