Each year, National Water Week makes a splash across Australia, inspiring individuals, education providers, communities and organisations to work together to build community awareness and understanding of water-related issues.

It's an exciting time again for primary school students to get creative for National Water Week's Poster Competition.


This year's National Water Week theme is:
'Reimagining our Water Future.' 

Primary schools from around the region are invited to design posters for a chance to win $400 for their school in five categories. Great prizes will be presented to the five winning students by Phil the Bucket and a GWMWater staff member. All students will receive a participation certificate and outstanding poster entries will receive an honourable mention. Phil the Bucket may also be available to visit other participating primary schools!
