Okanagan WaterWise Challenge
LOOKING FOR 2015 CONTEST INFO?
As part of Canada Water Week in March, Okanagan WaterWise invited youth throughout the Okanagan to submit multi-media entries with the theme "MAP YOUR TAP!" – encouraging young people to trace their water, from source to tap, and tell us why it's important to conserve and protect it, and show what people can do to help.
The winners were announced as part of B.C. Drinking Water Week, May 4 to 10, 2014.
Monique Porter's Grade 7 French Immersion class at Summerland Middle School who submitted a movie trailer based on The Hunger Games, called "The Thirst Games," where the main character "Catfish Everclean" (based on the original character Katniss Everdeen), struggling in a post-apocalyptic nation, teaches fellow district citizens the importance of protecting the water.
Uta Van Ziffle's Grade 1 class at Okanagan Landing Elementary in Vernon who submitted this sweet skit "Think Before You Drink," showing the water cycle, with 6 and 7-year-olds acting as snowflakes and raindrops falling in streams, making their way through pipes and into a house.
