The contest was open to all students first through sixth grades throughout Wisconsin.

Before entering the contest, teachers were asked to speak with the students about water conservation and how important this resource is to Wisconsin. Teachers then submitted their entries to WRWA. Almost 200 entries from over 50 schools were received for the contest. The finalists of each grade were posted at WRWA's Annual Technical Conference in Green Bay, attended by water and wastewater utility operators throughout the State. Attendees were asked to vote for the best poster in each grade.

First place winners in each grade will receive a $100 savings bond and their school was entered into a drawing for $500 for supplies for the school. Second place winners will receive a $50 savings bond.
