Water Education School Contests

Black snake

Cobb County Water System (CCWS) and Cobb County-Marietta Water Authority (CCMWA) partnered on the waterSmart program  in 2005 and conduct three  contests annually to give students at all grade levels an opportunity to learn about water conservation and the value of water.

  1. Coloring Book Contest with elementary school students
  2. Calendar Contest with middle school students
  3. Photography Contest with high school students

CCWS, through the Metro North GA Water Planning District, also provides students with the opportunity to participate in two competitive creative programs: middle school essay contest and high school video contest.

In addition, we encourage students to participate in the Georgia Project WET Georgia River of Words poetry and art contest and Georgia Wildlife Resources Division Give Wildlife a Chance poster contest.
