Water for all art competition now open!

Busselton Water is gearing up for another big celebration for National Water Week and is calling on the local community to enter this year’s ‘Water for All’ Art Competition.

The competition will collectively showcase the value of water to the Busselton community to reflect this year’s National Water Week theme, ‘Water for one, Water for all.’

The competition entries will be used to ‘skin’ a Busselton Water vehicle later in the year – so the artworks will be a permanent fixture around town!  All entries also have the chance of winning one of three $100 vouchers.

Busselton Water CEO Chris Elliott said that National Water Week is a reminder that the need for water is a commonality between everyone and together it’s important that we protect the precious resource.

“National Water Week encourages us to think about how we use water and consider how we might do that better to ensure there will be enough for the future,” Mr Elliott said.

“I encourage everyone to enter by demonstrating through art and words, why you value water.”

Two students, Emma and Kate Melzner, who have already submitted their Water for All art competition entries delved straight into the big question of why they value water.

“I value water because without it I would not be able to live, and we wouldn’t be able to feed animals,” said 12-year-old Emma. “Most life sources depend on water and they have found a water source on Mars!”

Ten-year-old Kate said that “water helps me live, it feeds the crops and animals and I drink it!”

The competition closes Friday 21 September. To enter, visit busseltonwater.wa.gov.au, download the Water for All template and get creative!
