Pennsylvania American Water Tuesday announced the winners of its “Imagine a Day Without Water” social media-based photograph contest, which challenged customers to share how a day without water might impact their daily routines.
The contest on Instagram and Twitter during October highlighted the company’s involvement in the national “Imagine a Day Without Water” promotion, an industry-wide education campaign by the Value of Water Coalition to raise awareness and build support for investment in drinking water systems.
The contest’s Grand Prize winner was Emma Marek of Luzerne County, whose photo (posted here) depicting what washing clothing would look like without water earned her an iPad Air 32GB.
First runner-up was Melanie Stevans from Washington County, who claimed an iPad mini, and the second runner-up was Cindy Cox of Lackawanna County, who was awarded a $100 Amazon gift card.
“We appreciate how the contestants used their imaginations to show our Instagram and Twitter followers how important water is to everyday life,” said Kathy L. Pape, president, Pennsylvania American Water. “Their photos illustrated how the absence of a sound water infrastructure would impact sanitation, fire protection, recreation and health – all important reasons why we need to proactively invest in our water systems.”
Entries were judged by a panel of Pennsylvania American Water employees on originality, composition, overall impact, artistic merit and subject matter relevance to the “Imagine a Day Without Water" theme.The winning entries will be featured on the PA American Water Facebook page and social media sites. Information about the national campaign is available at the Imagine A Day Without Water website.
