Children of Marietta teach how to Reduce our use of water and power in a poster contest!

On October 8, 2014, eight students were honored from Park Street Elementary School for their accomplishments. October 5-11, 2014 was Public Power and Clean Water Week. The students were asked to design posters illustrating preservation of water through source protection and conservation.

In an effort to educate citizens of all ages about Public Power and Clean Water Week, Marietta’s Board of Lights and Water held a poster contest for its adopted school, Park Street Elementary. The poster contest was judged using the themes below for both Public Power and Clean Water Week:

We ask you We Reduce Our Use

The Board of Light and Water is organized to create, build, operate and supply water systems, electrical systems, cable television systems, sewer systems, telecommunications systems and all other utilities. The board adopted Park Street Elementary to challenge the students to create posters that would show how our community can reduce our use of natural resources.

R & R Containers cares about our community and congratulate these young people.
