Wilmington Students Encouraged To Participate In MWRA’s Poster & Writing Contests

Below is an announcement from the Massachusetts Water Resource Authority (MWRA):

CHELSEA, MA — It’s MWRA contest time! Once again the MWRA is sponsoring Poster and Writing Contests for students who live in or attend school in a community served by the MWRA.

Students in the MWRA service area are invited to use their creative skills to design a poster and/or write an essay, poem or story explaining what should or should not be flushed down toilets or put down drains. So-called “flushable” wipes are a big issue, but it’s so much more than that!

Poster Contest

Students are asked to use their creative skills to create a poster explaining what should or should not be flushed down toilets or put down drains.

Posters should be no smaller than 8.5×11 inches and no larger than 18×24 inches. Posters received bigger or smaller than these dimensions will not be judged.

POSTERS WILL BE JUDGED IN 4 CATEGORIES: Gr. K-2, 3-5, 6-8 and 9-12.

Writing Contest

Use your creative skills to write an essay, story, or poem explaining what should or should not be flushed down toilets or put down drains.

Writing entries must be no more than 2 single-sided pages.

WRITING WILL BE JUDGED IN 2 CATEGORIES: Gr. 3-5 and 6-8.

Deadline

Entries must be postmarked by Wednesday, March 4, 2020. Early entries are encouraged!

Prizes

First prize in each category is a $100.00 gift card, 2nd prize is a $50.00 card, and 3rd prize is a $25.00 card.

All winners, including honorable mention winners, are invited with their families to an Awards Ceremony at Deer Island on Friday, May 22, 2020.
