When? August 5-September 5th, 2020
Who? Open to all ages!
To celebrate National Water Quality Month, the Clean Water Education Partnership invites you to create an art piece that shows how you interact with your watershed. A watershed is an area of land that all drains to the same creek, stream, or river. Everyone lives in a watershed!
Your art piece must somehow incorporate the name of the watershed you live in. Type your address into this interactive map to find your watershed.
Or, you can discover your river basin (a larger-scale watershed) by looking at this interactive map.
Get inspired by a few of these ideas:
- Use non-toxic sidewalk chalk to draw a watershed message to others in your neighborhood
- Create a poster with cool facts and photos from your watershed that you can share with others
- Draw or take a picture of one of your favorite plants or animals in your watershed
- Make a sculpture out of litter you find in your watershed

Your art piece can be in any medium you choose as long as you can take a photo of it.
Winners will have a photo of their art piece featured as the homepage header on the CWEP website and receive a CWEP Swag Bag with fun giveaways in the mail. Art will also be used by CWEP to create a set of greeting cards for our fall BioThon competition. 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners will be chosen weekly.
This competition is open to all ages. Children under 13 must have an adult submit their art piece.
Art can be submitted through this google form. If you have any questions please contact Hannah Barg, the CWEP Education and Outreach Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
