Molokai Student Winners in Poster Contest
Dept. of Water Supply News Release
Kilohana Elementary School Kindergartener Kiara Lima took first place in her division in the county-wide Department of Water Supply’s third annual Water Conservation Poster Contest. The contest drew 543 entries from public, private and home schools around Maui County. Kualapu`u School’s Carly Dudoit also placed third in the Kindergarten division.
The goal of the contest was to educate Maui Nui’s youth on the importance of water conservation and to encourage them to take an active role in ensuring the sustainability of our islands’ water supply. This year’s theme was “Malama I Ka Wai,” or to take care of the water.
The contest entries were evaluated based on water conservation message, originality, visual effectiveness, neatness and creativity. The first through third place winners will receive U.S. Savings Bonds; $100 for first place, $75 for second, and $50 for third. Winning entries and honorable mentions will be featured in the 2013 DWS Water Conservation Calendar, on the county website at mauiwater.org, and will also be honored on Monday, May 7 at the mayor’s office in Wailuku.
