Gippsland Water:
Announcing winners of the National Water Week Competition

National Water Week Poster Competition Winners.

By Portal Admin - 3rd November 2019 - Back to News

Students from a number of East Gippsland Primary Schools are the region’s winners in this year’s National Water Week Poster Competition.

The winners, who particularly impressed the judges with their vibrant and imaginative posters are: Dustin Hellisen (Prep – Lindenow Primary School), Tomas Hammond (1/2 – Lindenow Primary School); Mya Heitkamp (3/4 – Lindenow Primary School) and Osbourne Borland (5/6 – Swan Reach Primary School).

Congratulations also go to the runners up: Evelyn Antonopoulos (Prep- Lindenow Primary School); Grace McAuliffe (Prep- Buchan Primary School); Hannah Schaefer (1/2 Orbost North Primary School); Skylar Connelly (1/2 Lindenow Primary School) Georgia Feather (3/4 Lindenow Primary School); Asha Milliken (3/4 St Joseph’s Primary School); Amelia Hunter (5/6 Lakes Entrance Primary School) and Darcy Randel (5/6 Lindenow Primary School).

This year’s theme, ‘It’s time to change the world’, featured heavily in the regional entries for the primary school poster competition. More than 150 entries were received, making it very difficult for the judges.

East Gippsland Water’s Executive Manager Customers, Carol Ross, said, "National Water Week (21 - 25 October) reminds us that our water is precious and to use it efficiently to ensure a sustainable future for us and our children. The poster competition gives students a great opportunity to learn and develop their understanding of the importance of water and using it efficiently."

We are currently in the process of presenting the competition winners, runners up and their schools with their prizes. All participants also receive a certificate for recognition of their work. The winning posters are on display at our Bairnsdale Office, 133 Macleod St Bairnsdale, or on our website.

The Poster Competition is co-ordinated each year by VicWater, the peak body for Victorian Water Businesses, to raise awareness of water as our most precious resource.
