Annual Poster Contest Winners Move On to Regional Contest!
Rowland Water hosted their 2018 Annual Poster Contest and had the biggest turnout in the history of the contest. Nine out of 14 local schools submitted posters to be judged, and the District received more than 700 posters from students. The students are encouraged to create posters which depict water being used wisely at home, in the community, in recreation, in the environment, or that depict new water saving ideas for the future.
