3rd grade students are invited to showcase their ideas of what “Protect the Source” means to them. Submissions should fit on an 8.5-inch by 11-inch piece of paper or smaller. Hard-copies of the submissions should be delivered to the Evanston Water Production Bureau, 555 Lincoln St., by Monday, March 5 at 4 p.m. Communitywide online voting will occur from March 23 to April 6.

The winners will be announced at the Administration & Public Works Committee Meeting of the Evanston City Council on Monday, April 23 at 6 p.m. Awards will include Evanston Beach Token(s) for the 2018 summer, a plaque recognizing their achievement, and a chance to have their artwork displayed at the Main Public Library during Drinking Water Week.
