Need some inspiration for term one? Help Smart Water celebrate UN World Water Day and enter our Smart Water challenge. World Water Day is marked across the globe every year on 22 March. It’s all about appreciating water, learning more about it and reminding us that water is a precious resource for all of us to enjoy, especially in summer.

This is a simple sticker making activity that encourages students to think about an action to conserve water. 

To celebrate the day this competition offers your class the chance to win a trip to your local water treatment plant, bus travel and a class lunch! There are two runner up class prize sets including shower timers and magic flannels.
 
This year’s challenge is designed to get your students’ creative juices flowing and design an informative and water saving sticker which can be applied close to a water outlet. This could be at school or home and is designed to encourage the Smart Water way to do things. There are special no-mark stickers which stick very well to glass and smooth surfaces, but peel right off and leave no trace or residue.
 
All teachers who register will get a Smart Water supporters kit including a teachers drink bottle and a set of stickers for the class. All you need to provide is permanent markers to use on the stickers.
 
To register for this challenge and to be-in-to win all you need to do is:

  • register online www.smartwater.org.nz/unwwd
  • complete the sticker activity
  • email photos of your finished stickers (they must be attached to the area of where water is most likely to be wasted) to Smart Water by 10am on 29 March 2018.

Registrations are limited so Sign your class up now and start getting smart with water.

  • on top of the toilet
  • toilet and rubbish bin to remind not to flush tissues and rubbish down the toilet, to use the bin instead
