Philly Green City, Clean Waters Student Art Contest Accepting Entries Until March 17

The Partnership for the Delaware Estuary and the Philadelphia Water Department are now accepting entries to the 2017 Green City, Clean Waters Student Art Contest.  The deadline for entries is March 17.

Philadelphia students in grades K-12 attending public, private, charter or home school in Philadelphia can participate in this year’s Green City, Clean Waters Art Contest. All they need to do is create an original drawing that shows how we all can keep Philly’s Water clean! 

Examples can be found in the Green City, Clean Waters Plan, Storm Drain Marking Program, and fact sheets.

The four first-place drawings, one each age category (K-2, 3-5, 6-8 & 9-12),  will be transformed into street art stickers and installed on Philly streets.

The top three drawings from each age category will be included in an annual calendar sent to all participants and featured online.

Drawings will be featured in a SEPTA advertising campaign and a free calendar next spring. The winners will also be posted to websites hosted by the contest’s sponsors, Facebook, Flickr, and YouTube.

Other prizes to be awarded at a ceremony this spring include:

-- Gift cards up to $100 in value for students and $50 for teachers;

-- $100 gift cards for the first three schools or organizations to submit over 100 entries

framed certificates; and

-- A contest calendar available for free inside the Fairmount Water Works Interpretive Center.

For more information and an entry form, visit the Green City, Clean Waters Student Art Contest webpage.  Questions should be directed to Michelle Knoll by sending email to: or call 302-655-4990 ext. 112.
