Last week, over 750 organizations across the country participated in Imagine a Day Without Water in a number of creative ways—including art contests!

Several organizations hosted art and coloring contests to raise awareness about the value of water and wastewater infrastructure to everything that we do, engaging everyone from elementary school students to adults.

With drawings that imagine what a day without water would look like, to pictures of what we would miss if we didn’t have water, to diagrams of inventions that would help conserve water—there wasn’t a shortage of clever and creative interpretations of the true value of water.

Scroll down to see winning entries from art contests around the country.
