Drinking Water Week Winners!

The City of West Palm Beach is proud to be an active participant of the American Water Works Association’s annual Drinking Water Week. This year, we held an exciting artwork competition for our students answering a very important question; What does water mean to me?

Parents/teachers were limited to verbal assistance only to allow the children be creative in their free-hand original artwork.

Teachers submitted the top 5 drawings from their classroom.

Criteria for Judging: creativity, use of color, and how well the artwork expressed how water is essential to their daily lives. Spelling counts.

Congratulations to our 1st place winners!
