The Cocoa Utilities Department invited students in the Cocoa water service area to participate in the Florida Section of the American Water Works Association’s (FSAWWA) "Drop Savers" poster contest. Students in grades K-12 were encouraged to create a poster depicting a water conservation idea, in slogan form, drawing form, or both. The contest teaches elementary aged school children and reminds middle and high school aged teens about the importance of water conservation. Our best opportunity to conserve water is through a long-range education and awareness program, and what better way than to begin with our young people.
