With the possibility of another drought in years to come and supply scarcity on the forefront of everyone's mind, water resources need your help. This campaign's goal is to increase awareness of water conservation practices and encourage you to share innovative ways to reduce water use in the water user group you choose. In this campaign, it is your job to creatively propose new ways to save water or reinvent current practices. These can include technologies, new management techniques or educational awareness methods.
What's in it for you?
The first place winner will win an all-expense paid trip to Austin, where the group will present their conservation campaign to their state representative and/or the Texas Water Development Board. The top three campaign proposals will be awarded cash prizes. Each team member, of the top three teams, will be awarded a cash prize.
First place- $250
Second place- $200
Third place- $150
