Bonita Springs Utilities Inc. has announced winners of the 2020 “Drop Savers” water conservation poster contest:
Alinna Barrozo, Bonita Springs Elementary first-grade student, Division 1;
Yesica Marcos, Bonita Springs Elementary third-grade student, Division 2;
Nathalie Ricardo, Bonita Springs Elementary fourth-grade student, Division 3; and
Xingyi “Lorena” Huang, Bonita Springs Middle, sixth-grade student, Division 4.
Conducted in partnership with the Florida Section of the American Water Works Association, BSU coordinated with Bonita Springs and Estero elementary and middle schools to encourage students to create a poster depicting a water conservation idea. The contest helps students learn about and promote water awareness and the importance of water conservation in their daily routines.
The winners were chosen based on the water conservation message, creativity and originality depicted through their artwork. BSU awarded each winner with an award certificate, a $50 Target gift card and a $25 Royal Scoop gift card.
“Water conservation is an important topic for all ages,” said John R. Jenkins, BSU executive director. “The earlier we can introduce this topic to our youth, the earlier we can create and reinforce water-saving habits that they’ll carry throughout their lives.”
