In recognition of Maine Clean Water Week the Maine Water Environment Association again sponsored a poster competition for Maine students grades 1-12. The theme of the competition was “WHAT CLEAN WATER MEANS TO ME!” Over 600 posters were received from cities and towns throughout Maine and at the MEWEA Spring Conference winners were selected by the membership.
Students representing future generations of Maine citizens have shown their support by learning about the importance of water, ways that water is wasted, ways to conserve water, and how to protect the water we have. On Thursday June 8th, 2017 the winning students met at the Bangor Wastewater Treatment Plant and were recognized by the Maine Water Environment Association and Mayor Joe Baldacci.
Winning students each received a check for $100.00 from MEWEA, which was a small token of appreciation for their efforts.
