Where: St. Lucie County Schools (public, private, home school, etc.)
Who: Port St. Lucie Utility Systems, in conjunction with Florida Section American Water Works Association (FSAWWA)

City of Port St. Lucie employees will judge the posters on their message, creativity, and originality. A winner will be chosen from each participating grade level.
Each winner will receive a $25 Walmart gift card and other prizes. The students will also be invited to attend a special presentation at a City Council Meeting where they will be recognized for their efforts.
The winning posters will be submitted to the statewide “Drop Savers” Poster Contest, which will be held in mid-April.
