Storm Drain Art Contest Winners Announced

Contest winners to have artwork displayed on various County storm drains

 

Keep Forsyth County Beautiful and the Forsyth County Department of Water & Sewer have announced three high school students as the winners of the 2021 Storm Drain Art Contest. The contest winners are:

 

  • Zoe March (South Forsyth High School) - “Push Against Litter” 
  • Vivian Chen (Lambert High School) - “River Fish and Rain Fish”
  • Katrina Walden (Forsyth Central High School) - “Salamander Balance”

 

The contest called for current Forsyth County high school students to submit original artwork that educates about water quality and clearly enhances the theme: Only Rain Goes Down the Drain

 

The three contest winners will receive $100 in compensation for their work, certificates of recognition and will be painting their creations on designated storm drains throughout the city and county next spring.

 

“As water flows over land, streets and parking lots after a rain event, numerous contaminants including trash, chemicals, pet waste, motor oil, yard clippings, sediment, and fertilizers are collected along the way ending up in our water systems,” said Forsyth County Manager of Environmental Programs Tammy Wright. “Our hope is that this contest was able to help educate our residents about watershed health and the importance of keeping our waterways clean.”
