Water Color Project
Art Students Help Promote Water Conservation
Orange County public school students are helping OUC – The Reliable One get the word out about the importance of saving water. Since 2006, OUC has sponsored the Water Color Project, an education outreach effort designed to encourage water conservation through art.
Each year OUC has hosted a special reception at the Orlando Repertory Theatre to honor the winners and participants. At the reception, representatives from OUC honor the middle and high school students who decorated rainwater barrels and the elementary students who submitted drawings for the Water Color Project calendar.
“We’re excited to see how quickly the Water Color Project is growing with more and more Orange County teachers and students participating each year," said OUC Water Policy & Research Officer Rob Teegarden, who introduced the program. "Water supply is a critical issue here in Central Florida, and these talented students are helping to creatively deliver the message of water conservation to their fellow students and their community."
