During the 2013-14 school year, Dalton Utilities provided 3rd grade teachers in Dalton Public Schools and 4th grade teachers in Whitfield County Schools with resource packets for the program, “In The Know About H20,” which was designed to help teach students the importance of water conservation and preservation of drinking water sources. Teachers in the 3rd and 4th grades at Christian Heritage also received the materials. This program was designed to help students understand that water is an essential and limited resource and what each of us can do to conserve water in a fun and interactive atmosphere.
As part of the “In The Know About H20″ program, students submitted artwork that highlighted important water conservation tips. The artwork was judged by Kim Buckner, President and Creative Director of H2B Creative Advertising & Public Relations, and Liz Swafford, Executive Director of Keep Dalton-Whitfield Beautiful.
The winning entries will be displayed on the Dalton Utilities website later this month. Additionally, the winning art will be displayed on the digital billboard at the intersection of Thornton and Walnut avenues and the OptiLink Community Calendar on OptiLink Channel 6.
