Drinking Water Week Poster Contest

The Fond du Lac Water Utility is sponsoring a Drinking Water Week Poster Contest for Drinking Water Week May 1 – 7, 2022. Drinking Water Week is a week set aside each year to bring awareness to the benefits of tap water.

Whether its engineers designing pipe infrastructure, utility crews fixing a main break, or lab technicians ensuring a reliable water supply to your tap, water professionals are there when you need it and are critical to the success of any community. Remember and appreciate what it takes to deliver a safe drinking water supply; intricate maze of underground pipes, treatments plants, pumping stations, and storage basins ensure your water is there when you need it.

The City of Fond du Lac Water Utility are seeking children between 4K and 5th Grade to submit a poster themed “How Drinking Water Effects Your Daily Life”. The poster should show how tap water is essential to our daily lives. Children are encouraged to let their creativity show. Go wild with markers, colored pencils, glitter, or whatever you want to use to make your drawing remarkable. The artwork can be no larger than 11 by 17 inches.


One (1) submission per child and all submissions must include the completed Drinking Water Week Image Release Form, located on the Utility’s Website at www.fdl.wi.gov/water. Entries must be received by Friday May 20, 2022 by 3:30pm. Winners will be announced the week of May 23.

Entries will be judged on three criteria: how original the entry is, how well the concept is executed, and how well the poster relates to public water supplies.

Top three (3) winners will be selected in each of the following grades: 4K-1st Grade, 2nd-3rd Grade, and 4th-5th Grade. Winners will receive a Water Utility Prize Pack.

Entries can be mailed or dropped off at the:
