Water Conservation Workshops

Student Outreach

Since 1994, Redwood City Public Works has reached thousands of students through various water conservation outreach programs. Each year we sponsor: an annual water conservation poster contest, EarthCapades Environmental Act, WaterWise kits for schools, and much more.

Water Conservation Poster Contest


Our annual Water Conservation Poster Contest is a fun and dynamic way for kids to express their understanding of water conservation. It is the centerpiece of the School education program, designed to promote water conservation awareness among Redwood City students in kindergarten through 5th grade.

2018 Poster Contest Winners Announced!

The Water Conservation Poster Contest is designed to bring water conservation awareness to the children of Redwood City. Schools throughout the City participated in the contest, with approximately 1,000 submissions. With so many creative posters to choose from, it's difficult for our judges to choose the winners.

This year's poster contest theme, "HELP H2O JOE OBSERVE AND CONSERVE OUTDOOR USAGE," encouraged students to be aware of water-wise gardening and irrigation efficiency. Click here to view the winning posters.

We would like to extend our thanks to the schools, listed below, that participated. Without the support of the principals, teachers, and students, the program would not be possible.

Clifford School Hawes School Henry Ford School Hoover School
North Star Academy Our Lady of Mount Carmel School Redwood Shores School  Roosevelt School 
 Roy Cloud School Saint Pius School
