Water Conservation Art Contest

Open to all Polk County students in public or private schools, grades K-12. Students are encouraged to create a poster depicting a water conservation idea in slogan form, drawing form, or both.

Submissions should be at least 8 ½” x 11” in size and oriented horizontally (landscape). Suggested media includes: photographs, crayon, paints, fabrics, beads, computer-generated images, etc. Please do not use glitter (but do use your imagination).

Original artwork is highly encouraged! However, younger participants may obtain a pre-printed drawing template. The template is available by downloading here or by calling (863) 298-4236.

Art will be judged as follows: 50% communicating the Water Conservation message, 50% on creativity and originality. Remember, each poster should portray a water conservation idea by slogan, drawing, or both. (Pollution is a good theme, but is not really water conservation.)


Rosette ribbons will be awarded for first, second, and third place in each of the thirteen grade categories. All others receive participation ribbons. Award ribbons will be returned after the event. The top winners in each category will be featured in the 2022 Water Conservation Calendar.


Please put artist's name, grade, school, and mailing address on the back side of their work. Any entries with incomplete or missing information may be disqualified. Entries are limited to one (1) per artist.
