Board of Commissioners Invite Bethpage Students to Participate in Annual Poster Contest

Contest to Focus on Water Conservation

The Bethpage Water District Board of Commissioners, Gary S. Bretton, John R. Sullivan and William J. Ellinger announce the District will once again invite the elementary students of the Bethpage School District to participate in their Annual Bethpage Water Poster ContestThe contest, entitled No Bethpage without Bethpage Water, will correspond to the students’ science curriculum.  

The contest asks students to tackle the question, “When do I use water the most and why is it important to conserve water?” All poster submissions will be judged by the Water District’s Board of Commissioners who are looking for students to creatively express ways they think their community should conserve water.

“We were overjoyed by the participation and support from the Bethpage School District and parents of the District during last year’s contest,” said Commissioner Gary S. Bretton. “We cannot wait to see more creative and insightful submissions from the students of the District this year as we continue to educate the children of Bethpage the importance of conserving this most precious resource.”

Each student will receive a certificate of participation and the posters that convey the best message will receive special recognition from the Board of Commissioners and featured at the Bethpage Public Library. The Water District will schedule an awards ceremony to formally announce winners, present prizes and publicly display winning entries. Submissions are suggested to be on 11” by 14” paper. The deadline for poster entries is Friday, May 6, 2016.
