Drinking Water Week is less than a month away!  Start your preparations with the VA AWWA’s Drinking Water Week toolkit.  This tool kit, developed by the Water Awareness and Outreach committee, contains many FREE resources for your utility to use to promote Drinking Water Week. Utilities can access the Drinking Water Week Toolkit at: https://vaawwa.org/page/drinking-water-week/  
The toolkit includes:
  • Logos and Banners
  • Social Media Posts and Graphics
  • Template Press Releases
  • Celebration Ideas/Employee Appreciation
  • Children’s Activities! (including a children’s art contest!)
VA AWWA encourages all utilities to take advantage of these resources in their Drinking Water Week Celebrations.  Join VA AWWA for this year's Children's Coloring Contest.  Kids are encouraged to color themselves enjoying drinking water (whether that be drinking water, cooking, playing, or something else entirely!) on this cute coloring page. You can submit entries on social media by uploading the photo with the hashtag #DrinkH2OVA or by uploading the entries online at https://forms.gle/i7U2PhYer1KcGXdE7. Be sure to include the artist's name, age, and hometown. The winners will win a prize from VA AWWA along with having their photo highlighted on VA AWWA's social media channels!  Submissions are due by the end of Drinking Water Week on May 8th.
