Murfreesboro Water's 'Imagine A Day Without Water' Campaign - Local Students Encouraged to Enter the Artwork Contest

Sep 21, 2021 at 11:54 am by WGNS

As the annual ‘Imagine A Day Without Water’ Campaign is quickly approaching, the Murfreesboro Water Resources Community Affairs Department (MWRDCA) is excited to announce their first ever Imagine A Day Without Water High School Artwork Contest! 

MWRDCA is asking those in our community to step up and urge high school students to participate in the IADWW High School Artwork Contest which kicked off on September 15, 2021 and ends on October 15, 2021!

It is important for the youth of today to know The Value of Water and how important it is to act in preserving our most precious resource. 

“No water to drink or wash your hands with. No water to shower, flush the toilet, or do laundry. Hospitals would close without water. Firefighters couldn't put out fires and farmers couldn't water their crops. Disease and viruses would spread.” 

This year’s campaign is an effort to encourage students to acknowledge their environmental footprint, and to ultimately promote change in the future of water and wastewater infrastructure. There is no new water in our world. If we fall short of our most valuable natural resource, what would we do? Could you imagine a day without water?
