2019 Student Art Contests

October 22nd, 2018 Uncategorized

Student Art, Clean Water

Each year, Partnership for the Delaware Estuary (PDE) unites with colleague organizations to host student art contests in Philadelphia and Wilmington.  There’s also an annual contest for schools located within the Schuylkill River Watershed — Berks, Chester, Montgomery, and Schuylkill counties. These contests educate students about water pollution and how to prevent it. Street art made from winning drawings educates the public too!
