National Water Week 2018 - 21st - 27th October 

Communities across Australia celebrate National Water Week from 21-27 October in 2018. Water for Me, Water for All encourages each person to think about what they can do to ensure their community has adequate water supplies now and into the future. 

National Competitions for School Students

1) Primary School students can enter a poster colouring competition to be in with the chance to win a $200 prize! Entries close Friday, 16th November. 

Students can choose from 2 different poster designs.


2) Primary and High School Students can enter a short film competition to be in with the chance to win a $200 prize. Entries close Friday, 16th November.

The film must be under 5 minutes in length and respond in part or full to the question: What can we do to make sure there's water for me and water for all?


Both competitions are coordinated nationally by the Australian Water Association (AWA). To select and download a poster, read the guidelines for both competitions and to see instructions on how to submit your competition entry, go to the AWA National Water Week website.
