For the tenth year in a row the Oakland County Water Resources Commissioner’s Office (WRC) is proud to recognize its annual Kids’ Clean Water Calendar student artists. The Kids’ Clean Water Calendar is designed to impress upon young people and their families the importance of protecting our rivers, lakes and streams from pollution in Oakland County and across the region. More than one thousand fourth and fifth grade students from nearly thirty elementary schools across Oakland County entered artwork for the 2015 calendar.
“The Kids’ Clean Water Calendar is a great way to teach our children the importance of good environmental stewardship and protecting our precious waterways,” said Water Resources Commissioner Jim Nash. He went on to say, “We are pleased to recognize the students whose artwork will grace each month of this educational tool. The calendar is free of charge to folks throughout Oakland County and the region.”
Funding for the printing of the Kids’ Clean Water Calendar and Contest was made possible largely by Pure Oakland Water, a non-profit organization dedicated to protecting Oakland County and regional water resources through public education, community organizing, environmental advocacy and promotion of a sustainable future.
Students whose art was selected to represent each month and a grand prize winner will be receiving various gift cards as well as free passes to the Cranbrook Institute of Science and Oakland County Parks facilities.
