Can You Draw the Value of Water?

Each year, Partnership for the Delaware Estuary (PDE) unites with colleague organizations to host student art contests in Philadelphia and Wilmington.  Through our Schuylkill Action Network, we also host an annual contest for schools located within the Schuylkill River Watershed — Berks, Chester, Montgomery, and Schuylkill counties. These contests encourage the marriage of art and science, with this years prompts focusing on the value of water in students’ every day lives. Street art installations and special displays educate the public too!
