The Philadelphia Water Department, in collaboration with the Partnership for the Delaware Estuary, is hosting an awards ceremony to honor the winners of its Project Philadelphia’s Hidden Streams Art Contest tomorrow, Thursday, April 28 from 4 – 6 p.m.
For the past decade, the Delaware Estuary has worked to educate thousands of children about environmental hazards that result from rainwater run-off, and pollution.
This year alone, nearly 800 students participated by contributing Anti-pollution Artwork and are now being rewarded for their hard work and dedication to a more sustainable environment.
First-place drawings will be placed inside SEPTA buses and trains as advertisements, exposing the artwork to millions of commuting Philadelphians. There will also be a FREE published calendar at the Fairmount Water Works Interpretive Center. Videos projects will be featured on Flickr, YouTube, and the websites of Fairmount Water Works and the Partnership for the Delaware Estuary.
The ceremony will take place at the historic Fairmount Water Works Interpretive Center, located at 640 Waterworks Drive. Teachers and parents are encouraged to attend the event as well. For more information, contact Shaun Bailey at (800) 445-4935 ext. 11, or email him at SBailey@DelawareEstuary.org
