​​PA American Water Now Accepting Entries To Protect Our Watershed Student Art Contest

On February 14, the
PA American Water announced today that entries are being accepted for its 20th Annual Protect Our Watersheds Student Art Contest.  The deadline for entries is Earth Day April 22.

The contest is for fourth-, fifth- and sixth-grade students in schools served by Pennsylvania American Water, as well as individual students who live in the company’s service area. 

The contest encourages students to tap into their artistic talents to express the importance of protecting water resources across the Commonwealth.

Pennsylvania American Water recently sent contest information and applications to schools in its service territory, encouraging teachers to promote the contest as a fun and imaginative way to draw students’ attention to protecting and preserving Pennsylvania’s watersheds. 

As part of their entry, students must write a brief narrative on the importance of watersheds and how to protect them.

“For 20 years, students across Pennsylvania have shared with us their understanding of environmental awareness and watershed protection,” said Mike Doran, president of Pennsylvania American Water. “Year after year, we are amazed by their passion for protecting our natural resources, and we are thrilled to know that they are the future stewards of our water resources.”

Twelve entries will be selected for the 2023 Pennsylvania American Water Protect Our Watersheds calendar. 

First-, second-, and third-place winners will be selected from both Eastern and Western Pennsylvania to receive bookstore gift cards.  

Winners will be selected based on creative vision, artistic talent, understanding of watershed protection and the ability to communicate that understanding.  All entrants will receive a Watershed Champion Certificate.

For contest rules and entry forms visit the PA American Water’s Protect Our Watersheds Student Art Contest webpage. High-resolution photos or scans of artwork can also be submitted through the website.  Questions should be directed to:
