All City of Brighton elementary school students from kindergarten through fifth grade are invited to participate in the City of Brighton’s Water Conservation Poster Contest. The contest allows elementary school children to showcase their creative talents by conveying the importance of water conservation through a poster drawing.

The goal is to educate students by: 1) instilling an appreciation of water; 2) understanding the importance of protecting this precious resource and 3) providing information on how the community can conserve water.

Posters will be judged on creativity, relevance to theme, legibility and adherence to guidelines.
