“My fellow commissioners and I are extremely proud of the enthusiasm exhibited by the students in our community who participated in this year’s contest,” said Board of Commissioners , who serves on the board with Joel Kessler and Edward Shulroff.
“It is a truly rewarding experience to see these children understand the importance of not wasting our precious natural resource.”

Every year, students are invited to create their own posters expressing their answer in an artistic and creative way addressing the question: “What do I like about water and why we need to conserve this precious resource?”
