2019 Poster & Video Contest Results

10TH ANNUAL WATER CONSERVATION POSTER CONTEST
3RD ANNUAL SOURCE WATER PROTECTION VIDEO CONTEST

The Department of Water Supply (DWS) is pleased to announce the winners of its 10th Annual Water Conservation Poster Contest and the 3rd Annual Source Water Protection Video Contest


DWS received outstanding artwork from students from Kindergarten to Grade 8 and video entries from high school students. The panel of volunteer judges were immensely impressed by the talent displayed by our youth through their drawings and video recordings.

The theme for this year’s poster contest is “Conserving Water Starts with YOU”. Submitted artwork was judged based on three criteria: water conservation message, originality, and visual effectiveness (neatness and creativity).  

The theme for the video contest is “Clean Water, It’s In Your Hands”. Protecting source water from contamination reduces risks to public health from exposure to contaminated water, minimizes potentially negative environmental impacts on our natural resources and reduces water treatment costs. In creative videos, High school students expressed their understanding of the importance of protecting and preserving Maui’s drinking water.

Winning posters will be featured in the 2020 DWS Water Conservation Calendar, on the department website at www.mauiwater.org and will be on display at the 5th floor of the County Building for one year. Winning videos will also be available to watch on the department website. 

DWS would like to extend a sincere mahalo to our panel of judges for the poster contest: Ms. Barbara Silverstein, a retired art teacher, Ms. Debbie Von Tempsky, an artist and Ms. Kimberly Thayer, Program Associate at West Maui Mountains Watershed Partnership.  Video entries were judged by DWS staff.
