2012 World Plumbing Day Poster Competition Winners
A total of 81 winning posters from many countries around the globe were entered in the 2012 World Plumbing day Poster Contest. Children in Grades 2 through 5 from Jamaica, Trinidad, Scotland, British Columbia & Ontario, Canada, Newfoundland and the USA - Wisconsin, Ohio, California &Wyoming submitted the posters.
The posters were judged primarily for the message that World Plumbing Day represents – That Plumbing is vital to good health; the role that plumbing plays in our everyday life and the role that plumbing plays in the environmental issues. The artistic merit of the posters is secondary. The 81 posters were viewed by the staff at the American Society of Sanitary Engineering to choose the 10 best posters. These top ten posters were then put on display at the ASSE Mid-Year Board meetings for judging by the members present at the meeting.
The winners chosen are;
First Place - Alexis Briano, Grade 5, LaVerne Heights, California
Second Place – Jordan Weekes, Grade 4, Bishop Anstey Junior School, Trinidad
Third Place – Olivia Cooley, grade 3, Crestview Elementary, Brunswick, Ohio
The talent shown in these posters is absolutely amazing but more importantly these children heard the message of World Plumbing day and displayed it exceptionally well. This was a very difficult yet extremely gratifying experience.
