CARSON CITY, Nev. – The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) Stormwater Program is reminding all Nevada students grades K-5 of their chance to enter the “Love NV Waters” drawing contest through Nov. 7. The contest is an effort to help raise awareness with the younger generation about the importance of stormwater pollution prevention.

Winners will receive plaques and become published artists, with the first place student’s artwork featured on the cover of the 2017 NDOT Stormwater Program brochure, and the second and third place student’s artwork featured inside of the brochure. All student artwork meeting contest requirements will be shared on the NDOT @loveNVwaters social media pages.

“Water is a precious resource in Nevada and we can all do our part to help protect it,” said David Gaskin, NDOT deputy director. “We wanted to have some fun with our new campaign and include Nevada schoolchildren.”

The “Love NV Waters” drawing contest is open to all Nevada students grades K-5 including charter and home-schooled students. Artwork will be judged based on creativity and artistry in depicting the student’s favorite activity at their favorite Nevada lake or river and / or showing an activity people can do to help prevent stormwater runoff pollution. Examples and an educational video are available at http://www.nevadadot.com/StormWater/Educational.aspx.

Submissions must be received (digitally or by mail) by Nov. 7, 2016 and winners will be announced via e-mail and on the Love NV Waters website on Nov. 14, 2016. Nevada teachers can also submit student artwork with contest release forms signed by student’s parent or legal guardian.
