Local children add colour to waterwise challenge

The Busselton Water Waterwise Colouring Competition has seen three talented local children recognised for their artistic efforts and inspiring waterwise tips.

More than 30 children took to the challenge to add a splash of colour – and their top three water-saving ideas – to the competition, resulting in Kiarna Nichols, Tyla Ferguson and Sophie Piggott each taking home a prize pack for their efforts.

The works were judged based on creativity and effort and commended all those who entered.

“The hard work and effort put into these entries was amazing and we were so happy to see how much these kids know about saving water through their top tips – from shorter showers and using waste water on the garden, to checking for leaks and fixing dripping taps, the kids really knew their stuff!,” said Busselton Water Chair Helen Shervington.

“It was very difficult to judge as there were so many high quality entrants, however we would like to offer our congratulations to Kiarna, Tyla and Sophie on their winning entries.”

The Busselton Water Waterwise Colouring Competition which ran over the summer and autumn months assisted in raising awareness of water as a precious resource amongst young children within the Busselton and surrounds community.

Kids aged 13 or younger entered the competition by colouring in the designated picture and providing three tips on how they can save water around their home.  All the entries are available for viewing on the Busselton Water Facebook page (@BusseltonWater)
