The Bethpage Water District (BWD) Board of Commissioners Chairman William J. Ellinger, Treasurer John R. Sullivan and Secretary Gary S. Bretton recently announced that the community can view winning artwork from the District’s 2015 Water Conservation Poster Contest at the Bethpage Public Library. Eighteen Bethpage School District student-designed posters will be on display through August 2015.
“Bethpage students have worked diligently on brainstorming new ideas for water conservation and creatively expressing their thoughts,” said Board of Commissioners Chairman William J. Ellinger. “We are overjoyed to share the students’ hard work with the rest of the Bethpage community.”
Over 350 Bethpage students from all three Bethpage School District elementary schools participated in the BWD‘s annual poster contest entitled Bethpage Protects, Bethpage Conserves. Students designed and submitted posters aimed to answer the question: “How Can I Conserve and Protect My Water?”
Three students’ posters were chosen as winners from the fourth and fifth grade classes in each school. First, second and third place posters from each grade are now showcased in the Bethpage Public Library’s Children’s Center.
