Vermont Drinking Water Week


Some of the most plentiful and cleanest drinking water on the planet can be found here in Vermont. Our health and well-being are supported by safe and reliable drinking water supplies—and the water professionals working at water treatment facilities in nearly every town. Think about what life would be like without safe and reliable water.

Each year, the Vermont Drinking Water Week Committee provides interesting and thought-provoking concepts and activities for your students grades 4-6 during Drinking Water Week, the first full week of May.

Poster Contest

Students in grades 4, 5, and 6 can submit artwork that reflects this year’s theme: Water is Essential.

There will be a winner and honorable mention  for each grade level. Winners will receive a prize and their artwork will be printed for distribution. Due to COVID-19, awards will not be presented in person.
