In conjunction with Children’s Week and Water Week which will be held from 19-28 October 2018, Shoalhaven City Council and Shoalhaven Water are inviting schools to help be water wise by being creative.
As the Shoalhaven has just launched Level 1 Water Restrictions, Council has organised a “Tap and Win” competition aimed at the younger generation to educate them about being water warriors.
Council is inviting school classes and teachers to think about being water-wise and to enter the competition by making a video, song, poem, podcast or webpage on how the Shoalhaven can be more water-wise. Tap to Win!
Open to primary and high schools in the Shoalhaven LGA, classes of all ages are encouraged to be creative to share creatively how we can all save water. Entries must be less than one minute and can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org if under 10 MB with a Subject Line – Tap and Win Competition. Video files must be on a disc or USB and can be sent to Shoalhaven City Council, PO Box 42, Nowra NSW 2541.
Shoalhaven City Council Mayor Amanda Findley said, “This competition is a great way for children to learn more about being water conscious. It starts at an early age and this encourages classes to learn more about water and where it comes from.”
Shoalhaven Water offers teachers a number of resources including experiments and water-wise tips on their website at http://shoalwater.nsw.gov.au/Community/Tapstar to help with the project.
The winning class will win a class pass to Swim and Fitness waterslides at your choice of Nowra, Ulladulla or Bay and Basin,
