Submit as many entries as you like!

Entries must explain the initiative clearly and include any tips and advice. Teacher support is encouraged, however, we are looking for entries that have been produced by students.

How the winners are chosen

The competition is open for entries  each term. A winner is chosen by a panel of Coliban Water staff at the end of each term.

What we are looking for

• A clear explanation of the initiative (what it is, what materials you used, how it is set up, what difference it has made and the advice for other schools)

• Clear communication of the initiative: use of images or video, text, subtitles or voice over (not too fast and loud enough)

• How engaging is the entry

We will contact the winning school to arrange a presentation of the prize and share the initiative on our social media channels and through our Education Newsletter.

Why are we doing this?

There are 100 schools in the Coliban Water region. Around 40 schools are part of the SWEP program and 16 schools are registered with ResourceSmart Schools.

Schools are a large user of water. When schools act to reduce water usage they can save money while modelling positive water saving behaviours to their school community.

The aim of the competition is to inspire schools to be more water efficient and sign up for the SWEP and ResourceSmart Schools programs.

Entries close on Wednesday 6 April 2022.
