Children's Poster Contest
In the beginning...
the City of Santa Fe sponsored its 1st Children's Water Conservation Poster Contest in 2004. The contest is now an annual event with each year becoming more popular and successful. The poster contest, which is held each year by the City of Santa Fe's Water Conservation Office, provides teachers the opportunity to discuss with their students the importance of conserving water. The 2012 9th Annual Children's Water Conservation Poster Contest's theme, "Living in a Drought," gave hundreds of students the opportunity to artistically illustrate meaningful water conservation messages, which are included in the 2013 Water Conservation Calendar (now available!)
Children's Water Fiesta
The First Santa Fe Children's Water Fiesta...
was held on March 13 & 14, 2003, at the Sweeney Convention Center where students and teachers gathered to celebrate water. The Santa Fe Children's Water Fiesta continues to be a growing success. Educating students and teachers about water and its relationship to human and other natural resources in a fun and interactive atmosphere is the primary goal of the event. The activities are designed to help students understand that water is an essential and limited resource and teach what each of us can do to protect and conserve our precious water.
